I am thrilled to attend TEDx Ravi (TEDx Lahore). A large number of great thinkers are coming there to help make this world a better place by sharing their ideas.
A similar event, TEDx Karachi, was held on 4 June this year.
For those who are not familiar with TED/TEDx conferences, here are some excerpts from TED.com.
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.
Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer.
TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TEDx program and the annual TED Prize.
TEDTalks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED with the world. Under the moniker “ideas worth spreading,” talks were released online. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. Indeed, the reaction was so enthusiastic that the entire TED website has been re-engineered around TEDTalks, with the goal of giving everyone on-demand access to the world’s most inspiring voices.
Hats off to the hard working team.
