TEDxTO Webcast

TEDxTO webcast at KMDI

Please join KMDI on Thursday September 10, 2009 from 12:00pm to 7:00pm for the live webcast of TEDxTO.  Refreshments will be served throughout the course of the day.

What is TED?

is an annual event where some of the world's leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. "TED" stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design - three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broaderstill, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. The diverse audience - CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists - is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.

TED was first held in Monterey, California, in 1984. In 2001, Chris Anderson's Sapling Foundation acquired TED from its founder, Richard Saul Wurman. In recent years, TED has expanded to include an international conference, TEDGlobal; media initiatives, including TED Talks and TED.com; and the TED Prize. TED2010, "What the world Needs Now," will be held February 9th – 13th, 2010, in Long Beach, California, with a simulcast event in Palm Springs, California.  TEDIndia will be held in November 2009.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx - local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event,  TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

What is TEDxTO?

TEDxToronto (TEDxTO) was established by an enthusiastic group of volunteers based in Toronto who are passionate about TED and generating "Ideas Worth Spreading". The theme of TEDxTO is "What's Next?" We see it as a challenge: what are the new and as-of-yet undiscovered ideas, projects, and people that will shape the future of our city, and ultimately the world? The event includes:

  • 13 Speakers (See speaker bios on TEDxTO.com for full information)
  • 3 TED Videos
  • 2 conversation breaks
  • Toronto's 1st TEDxTO After-Party
  • 130+ live attendees with a webcast of approx. 3500 connections.
  • Visit TEDxTO.com for more information.

The main event will be held at the Theatre Passe-Muraille. Because space and tickets are limited, we are hosting a live webcast of the event at KMDI.

Date: Thursday September 10, 2009
Time: 12:00pm – 7:00pm (Drop in and outs throughout the course of the day are welcome)
Place: Bahen Centre for IT, 40 St. George Street, BUL Conference Room, Room 7256 (7th Floor)
