Never heard of TEDx? You probably have heard of TED (if not, check out their Wikipedia page), TEDx is an independently organized TED event. As the TEDxBeijing website describes it:
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDxBeijing, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBeijing event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
I won’t be able to attend TEDxBeijing in person tomorrow (I wish each day would have 48 hours…), but Tudou.com is once again the publishing sponsor and will live stream the event starting at 1:30 PM China time (6:30 AM Central European Time) at http://www.tudou.com/home/tedxbeijing. The program is expected to be finished by 7:15 PM.
All talks will be available online at Tudou after the event as well. And if you’re interested in the TEDxShanghai talks, you can watch them all here: http://www.tudou.com/home/tedxshanghai
