2In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxRheinMain, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program,but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
