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 TEDx Napa Valley, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx Napa Valley 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. you probably want to know about the upcoming is the info from their website:

This TED-like experience will be the catalyst to inspire the achievement of common goals. They will ignite excitement which will go on to live locally in the conversations that ensue, and worldwide as part of the TED community.

**The live talks will be taped in real time and the best of the presentations will be submitted to TED in New York for consideration as TEDTalks and potential posting to, translation into multiple languages for the fast-expanding and global community.

Attendance at TEDx Napa Valley is for: dynamic thinkers, positive reinforcers, determined citizens, those searching for answers to questions never asked, and those willing to question the answers already given.
