It was one of the most talked about events of the fall last year and 900 lucky folks were inspired by some of the region’s brightest minds sparking deep discussion and an invitation to Date Your City.
And now finally for all those who missed it (or those of you who want to relive it), 27 videos from TEDxDayton were posted to YouTube. Fans of the event can view the Dayton TEDx presenters to choose from approximately two and a half hours of magical moments, inspired by the TED talks mantra of promoting “ideas worth spreading.”
“It’s been so exciting to experience this community’s overwhelming support for TEDxDayton,” said event co-chair Sean Creighton. “Dayton is a community full of passionate, inspired and engaged people, of dreamers and doers in the world. The way this community has embraced TEDxDayton really illustrates this.
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.
Planning is currently underway for the 2014 TEDxDayton event. Visit www.tedxdayton.com in April for updates and more details on what Dayton has in store for year two.
