Physicist, inventor, bestselling author, and futurist David Brin talks about how problems are solved in today's society, how we should approach things that frustrate us, and why and when we should speak up. How do we combat the cynicism that prevents us from acting to solve our problems? And how do we handle the anger that comes with them?

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)
