In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxLive is a new extension of the TEDx program. TEDxLive events are twice a year TEDx events built around the live webstream of the TED Conference. Instead of featuring local speakers and pre-recorded TEDTalks videos, TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience all 12 sessions of the TED Conference, and TEDxBellevueLive will be featuring a subset of those sessions at 9AM Pacific Time, Wednesday, June 27, 2012. Event will be at Shoreline Community College, located at 16101 Greenwood Ave North, Shoreline, WA 98133 in the Automotive Technology Building Number 2100, Hunter Training Classroom 2114.
Our event is called TEDxBellevue, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxBellevueLive, our attendees will experience the TED Conference, live, via webcast. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDxLive program, but individual TEDxLive events, including ours, are self-organized.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started 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, free, at 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 UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDxLive, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
TED2012, "Radical Openness," will be held June 25-29, 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
