Scientists argued for 150 years that politicians needed to stop population growth, but it weren't new laws that stopped its acceleration. No, it happened as the pill became widely available.

When we have a social agenda we still behave like those old scientists -- we
agitate instead of innovate. So let's rethink devoting resources to the zero-sum game of politics and instead focus on enabling technologies that change society!

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.*
