In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx Bay Area is part of a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED organization provides a license and guidelines for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are organized locally.
