Last 15th of February 2010, I officially won an invite to the TEDx Fort Bonifacio event.  I was so excited as I have watched a lot of TED talks.

What is TED anyway?

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

What is TEDx?

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDxFortBonifacio, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFortBonifacio event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

With TED talks, you get to hear the best speakers speak about their ideas.  It is a great experience to those who have witnessed it and I was lucky I won an invite.

It was a truly inspiring event indeed as we hear people from our community share significant insights that we listeners can take home.  I am not sure of how many TEDx events have happened here in the Philippines already but I hope there would be more TEDx conventions.

Here are pictures I have about the event.

  1. Heard a lot about it, but never attended one. Maybe I should start looking to bring myself to some of these events and get inspired :)

  2. this is the first time i heard about it, perhaps i need to read more about it and find out their upcoming events so i can attend too

  3. you don’t have to be a good speaker to share something TED-worthy. If you’d see TED talks in US, most of these guys are not good talking in public that they let their ideas talk for themselves. Nice that they’re already here in RP.
