Background, (Wikipedia etc):
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design)
is a media organization which
posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan ideas worth spreading.
TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held
annually since 1990.
TED's early emphasis was technology and design,
consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to
include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics.
Since June 2006,
TED Talks have been offered for free viewing online, under an
Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives Creative Commons license, through
TED.com. The first Swedish speaker on
TED was the world champion on card
magic, the “mis-director” Lennart Green. He was also an honorary guest at our
very first TEDxNorrköping event,
September 2011. The TEDx concept,
TED Events, was introduced 2009.
The talks from
TEDx events are highly appreciated and our most
popular TEDxNorrköping talk,
Carol Dweck: The Power of Yet, has
visits. Our recent event, Acting to Empower, was our 21st
Origin of TEDxNorrköping and its Evenings for Curious Minds
TEDxNorrköping has emerged from a group of people involved in the
organization of The 13th International Conference on Thinking,
ICOT-13, in Norrköping 2007. A conference
with about 1300 participants from more than 30 countries. The aims now are very similar: To offer an arena where people across
different sectors, disciplines, cultures, religions, ages, etc., can meet and share experience, views and ideas. To create a
meeting-place for people who don't normally meet. Our closing keynote speaker 2007 was the incredible
Hans Rosling. He was one of
the very most popular speakers on TED.
The substantial footprints from the conference 2007 have encouraged us to
initiate the TEDxNorrköping effort.
You are very welcome to suggest speakers and themes for future events, both
“standard events” and the more informal Salon events, PUB-like after-work/study activities.
