Welcome to TEDxMUET

About

TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started in 1984 with Richard Saul Wurman’s observation of a powerful convergence among three fields: technology, entertainment and design. The first TED event included a demonstration of the compact disc, the e-book, and cutting-edge 3D graphics from Lucasfilm, while a mathematician demonstrated how to map coastlines using fractal geometry.

TEDx

The x in TEDx refers to independently organized TED events, an initiative that started in 2008 to bring TED-like gatherings to smaller communities — like Santa Cruz. These events — 1,500 of them scheduled all over the world so far in 2015 — spark conversation and connection in the spirit of ideas worth spreading. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These self-organized events are branded TEDx and are subject to certain rules and regulations.

TEDxMUET

TEDxMUET is an independently organized TED event to create two things: a conference, and a community, where live Speakers and TED Talks (videos) combine to explore a range of new, important, and often little-heard ideas and perspectives. TEDxMUET will bring professionals from diverse fields and students of various disciplines in one place to create an overwhelming learning experience and the possibility of networking between people with different competencies or areas of expertise.
