Owning The Skin You’re In
In the spirit of declaring all bias, I may as say this in my opening paragraph; I am a dancer. I practise yoga. I am a runner, a swimmer and I love a day long hike. People bloody hate that. Enjoying physical activity is, ironically, a form of social leprosy. Just like ordering salad when […]

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of 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. 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.
