TED is a 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 Edinburgh UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
For a full list of speakers and schedule for the day, visit their website.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission: Ideas Worth Spreading. The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.

- Damian Bazadona founded Situation Interactive in 2001 on the guiding principle that the world is a better place when people are doing things rather than just having things. From their NYC headquarters, Situation powers digital strategy and ideation for brands like Major League Soccer, The Guggenheim, The Metropolitan Opera, the 2014 NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee, and NBCUniversal. In addition, Damian is an ongoing speaker for graduate programs at Yale University, Columbia University, NYU, and Brooklyn College; and he’s an active contributor and source to business publications like The New York Times, Variety, and Inc.com. Damian strives to stay true to Situation’s mission of doing, not having—and inspiring other to do the same. When he’s not working, you’ll likely find him with his family…or dreaming up his next great DJ set.
