TEDxSanDiego in 2014 – Chain Re·ac·tion

We’re hard at work on this year’s event, which is set for November 8th at fabulous Symphony Hall, and we hope to see you in our new home! (Registration for TEDxSanDiego 2014 will begin in July, so stay tuned!)

Our theme, Chain Reaction, speaks to the ways in which one person is able to affect the lives of many through their thoughts and actions, as well as how technology can alter the way in which we communicate & interact with one another, thus changing the fabric of our society.

Now in our fifth year, TEDxSanDiego has featured over 90 speakers & performers whose videos have received over 1.7 million views, which truly illustrates the powerful impact of Ideas Worth Spreading.

What Attendees Say About TEDxSanDiego

The entire experience was professional from start to finish, from the registration desk to the seating to the experiences and, of course, especially the talks!

While all the speakers and experiences were awesome in showing how the world is using technology, entertainment, and design to further advance the world, bring healing, and inspire each other, it was really the community that was the most inspirational for me.

I was inspired and moved and began to care for myself in small ways after last year’s event. Because of those changes, I know I have been better able to contribute to the world, whether my work or my family or other activities.

What is TEDx

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSanDiego, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSanDiego event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
