What is TED and TEDx?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading innovative and challenging ideas. The initials stand for “Technology, Entertainment, Design” but the conferences focus on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics. TED Talks are usually short, powerful, and creatively presented stories designed to instill excitement and inspiration.

A TEDx conference, like a regular TED event, includes live speakers and recorded TED Talks. The difference is that TEDx conferences are independently organized, with the blessing – and licensing – of TED.
