It is movement that cannot be stopped. Rhythm that does not slow. It is your own will operating at its greatest force. On October 7, 2010 TEDxCincy uncovered PASSION, the energy behind life’s most fearless pursuits.
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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
