TEDxVienna invites to TED Global Livestream afternoon

 

 

We are pleased to announce that we will stream part of the 2011 TED Global program @ TEDxVienna(Live)!

In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has created TEDx: it is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxLive is a new extension of the TEDx program: such events are twice a year, built around the live webstream of the TED Conference. Instead of featuring local speakers and pre-recorded TEDTalks videos, TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience all 12 sessions of the TED Conference. In addition to the live webstream, TEDxLive event may contain local speakers and performers.

Our event is called TEDxVienna(Live), where x = independently organized TED event. At a TEDxVienna(Live), our attendees will experience the TED Conference, live via webcast. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDxLive program, but individual TEDxLive events, including ours, are self-organized.
