TEDx, alfresco: In San Jose, California, TEDx’ers took over Santana Row Park in Silicon Valley to watch TEDGlobal 2013 in the fresh air. Attendees came from all over the area, and TEDxBrussels curator Sam De Brouwer came all the way from Belgium to join in the fun. Organizers had a quadracopter fly over the scene to take video and photographs of the crowd amongst the park’s trees and blue sky.

Ever wanted to watch a TED Conference live? What about live at your favorite coffee shop? In a park on a giant screen? At a castle?

All over the world, TEDx’ers are organizing amazing events — TEDxLive events — to watch day 3 of TEDGlobal (Wednesday, June 12) live via webcast
outside, inside, and in venues of all kinds — from a Canadian castle to a Swiss tech lab.

And you can join them — either in person or by following the action on Twitter.

We’ve made a list of all the TEDxLive events that will be sharing stories from their events live on Twitter this Wednesday, and on our website you can find a list of all TEDxLive events happening around the world  — but, as a teaser, here are three TEDxLive events to look out for next Wednesday:

  • In sunny Zurich, Switzerland, TEDx’ers at TEDxZurichLive will be hosting their second TEDxLive event at the city’s local innovation lab: the HUBZurich. The HUB, built into the arches of a railway viaduct, will provide a stunning space for watching talks and, as team member Karin Friedli says, “the generous hospitality of the team makes everyone feel welcome and at home.”

  • At TEDxYouth@HumboldtBayLive TEDx’ers are having a pajama party! The organizing team of this TEDxYouth event found a great way to deal with the time difference from TEDGlobal in Scotland and their event in the United States — turn the 2 AM talks session into a party. There will be pillows, sleeping bags, and TED Talks for all!

  • Call the X-Men, because in Canada, TEDxLive will infiltrate Professor Xavier’s X-Mansion. On Wednesday, TEDxVictoria will be held in Hatley Castle in British Columbia — or as it’s also known as — the X-Mansion in the films X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand.
