"The tales are a little sweet, a little sad, and okay, a lot of them depict failing with girls. But underneath brims an unfaltering self-confidence; he believes in the power of being a good egg."
-- Jane Borden, Time Out New York

About TEDx:
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)
