“TED stands for ‘Technology, Entertainment and Design,’ but it’s really much more than that,” says Sara Tekula, one of TEDxMaui’s founders. “I feel that TED is about the human need to learn, teach and share. We all want to know more about our world. We want to understand how things work, or how they can work better or differently. TED really offers a vast educational library of brief ‘talk story’ moments where incredible people are given 18 minutes or less to share their big idea with the world…”
TEDxMaui offers our own community the chance to get in the mix…with just as many “ideas worth spreading” — the mantra behind TED — as the original conference.
