TED Blog: Announcing the launch of TEDx — and first TEDxTalk from TEDxUSC

A new way for local communities to create and host their own unofficial TED-style events!

In the spirit of “Ideas Worth Spreading,” TEDx is a program that enables schools, businesses, libraries or just groups of friends to enjoy a TED-like experience through events they themselves organize, design and host. They are supporting approved organizers by offering a free toolset that includes detailed advice, the right to use recorded TEDTalks, promotion on our site, connection to other organizers, and a little piece of our brand in the form of the TEDx label.

It’s an experiment that we hope will nurture the growth of a truly global TED community.
