How will TEDx change the world?

Over 650 TEDx organizers have traveled to Doha, Qatar for the first ever TEDxSummit taking place this week, April 16-20. I am one of them.

Have you attended a TEDx? Are you curious about bringing the TED philosophy alive in your community? How would you participate? What ideas would you bring to the table among TEDx organizers over the next week?

Why does TEDx matter?

    Apr 17 2012: Tedx can make a bigger difference being more opened to the low class citizens. The big key for a mental revolution in the world is attaching directly on education, specially poor people. This is quite difficult, counting that many of the groups inside this "category" don't have any access to Ted's materials. I didn't have myself a few days ago, it was a happy accident that I found out about this. Maybe Ted could come up with simpler projects. Even if you reach a lower population, their precarious formation won't be enough to let Ted's materials reach their minds and trully make a difference. Not that I underestimate these people, it's not more than a horrendous reality.
