“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 called TEDxAuckland, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAuckland event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
It is being organized by The Department of Doing Ltd under official license by TED.
The first event is scheduled for Thursday October 1st, 2009 at Westlake Boys High School.
Applications to attend TEDxAuckland 09 will be made available via the TEDxAuckland website on 1st August 2009″
