With a great speaker lineup, the 1st TEDxColumbus event on Oct. 20th, 2009, promises to be quite remarkable. Speakers include former astronaut John Glenn, librarian Chrystie Hill (OCLC), industrial designer Reade Harpham (Battelle), Ann Pendleton-Julian (Professor & Director, Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture, Ohio State University), and many other notable luminaries.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDx (place), where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx (place) event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
