TEDÂ (Technology, Entertainment, Design), an invitation-only event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers gather to find inspiration has produced a spin off, TEDx, that is coming to Vancouver.
A former TEDx speaker, local blogger, photographer and all around interesting guy, Kris Krug explained the idea behind TEDx in a recent blog post:
“They just recently announcedÂ TED x which is a franchised community version of the bigger TED conferences. Theyâ€™re encouraging folks to take the spirit and format of TED and have local events focused on the coolest in technology, entertainment, and design. Itâ€™s a great concept that initiates community support, discovery and definitely promotes ideas that are worth spreading.”
