Alan Mendez, a senior at Salisbury, spent much of his career on stage. He believes it is the chaotic realm of theater that promotes innovative thought in our minds. He also believes that chaos causes "walking around the leaf" effect, in which many people pay very little attention, thus never truly expanding their minds toward true innovation. He believes, if they learn to "walk around the leaf," they will most certainly begin to see just how easy it really is to innovate.

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.
