Talk From TEDxFortWayne 2012
PRLog - Jan. 14, 2013 - FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- TEDxFortWayne organizers have announced plans to host an independently organized TEDx event on April 27, 2013 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “Ignite” will be the event’s theme and talks will aim to spark ideas into action for the purpose of improving Commerce, Health, and Community throughout NorthEast Indiana.

April 27th will mark the third consecutive TEDxFortWayne event in as many years. The single-day occasion is supported by dozens of volunteers who are driven to improve the region in which they live.

One TEDxFortWayne volunteer, Jennifer Dodds Fox, explains, “As a new-ish resident of Fort Wayne, I’m beyond thrilled to have discovered (and infiltrated) a group of passionate individuals hell-bent on tackling the weaknesses of our city while highlighting its strengths. I love TEDxFortWayne for allowing me and so many others to be part of the conversation.”

TEDxFortWayne’s organizer, Craig D. Crook, plans to reveal the 2013 venue in the coming weeks. In contrast to previous years, TEDxFortWayne will not be limited to hosting a maximum of 100 guests. “We’ve reached a kind of tipping-point here and people have really taken notice. They’re interested in taking all these great ideas and igniting them by taking action. We certainly expect a bigger, better event for 2013.”

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

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.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
