What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self‐organized events that bring people together to share a TED‐like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self‐organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self‐organized.
What is TEDxWaterloo? TEDxWaterloo is an independently organized TED event that will take place in the Region of Waterloo on February 25, 2010, running from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The theme for TEDxWaterloo is Tomorrow Started Yesterday and it will take place at the Gig Music Hall in Kitchener, Ontario (137 Ontario St. North, Kitchener).
