Years ago, I was turned on to Ted Talks/TEDx by my sister.  She shared amazing presentations with me and I instantly wanted more.  Billings is hosting TEDx on Saturday January 11th at the new library this weekend and I am honored enough to be hosting!  TEDx is a global movement devoted to bringing Ideas Worth Spreading to communities around the globe through independently-organized TED-like events meant to inspire conversation, prompt innovation and create connections.  It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. TEDx furthers the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading by bringing people together to share a TED-like experience through a program of local, self-organized events, built around screenings of TEDTalks videos or live presenters and TEDTalks videos.
