What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short powerful talks.  Back in 1984 when it started, it was focused on Technology, Entertainment, and Design – Now, TED covers a wide array of topics.

What is TEDx?
TED created a program to support independent organizers who want to create TED-like experiences in their own community. There are now over a few thousand TEDx organizers around the world.

What is TEDxFolsom?
TEDxFolsom is an independently operated TEDx event. We believe thinking and discussing are inseparable. All great ideas deserve talk time – beginning the moment they take hold in our minds – and as they evolve and expand over time. We want exciting concepts to proliferate throughout our community resulting in a matrix of individual perspectives strengthened through robust discussions.
