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.  TED is a small nonprofit devoted to online casino Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984)Windows 8 Clave as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.  Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning Win8Clave.com TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
