What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Starting as a four-day
conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing
ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading
thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, for
free, at www.TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall,
Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi
Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende, and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual
TED Conference takes place each spring in Long Beach, California, along with the
TEDActive simulcast in Palm Springs; the annual TEDGlobal conference is held each
summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to
share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxNYU, where x = independently
organized TED event. At our TEDxNYU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers
will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED
Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx
events, including ours, are self-organized.
