What is TEDx?
TEDxLive is a new extension of the TEDx program, launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are built around the live webcast of the TED Conference.Instead of featuring local speakers or pre-recorded TEDtalk video, TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience all five sessions of TEDWomen: 25+ live speakers, performers, tech demos and more over the
span of two days.
TEDWomen will take place on December 7 and 8, 2010.
TEDWomen will reveal:
- Who are the women leading change?
- What ideas are they championing?
- And how will they shape the future?
- Also, how are women and men in concert with one another, orchestrating different but complementary approaches to ideas worth spreading?
