Creating possible worlds...we are all the sum total of existence and experience. We continue to expand on that sum total with each breath. Good designers and innovators use imagination and change as their muse and then practically apply it. Rather than moving into the future looking through a rear view mirror ( to borrow from McLuhan ) they lead with a quiet power transcending politics and religion and sparking the imagination and dreams of others. Imagination, like love and bacteria, is eternal. 4 speakers. 4 possible worlds. All doable.

When & Where
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
