How has TEDx impacted you

As a coordinator of a TEDx event, my life has been changed in many ways. My mind has been opened to new ideas and concepts, I've learned to trust members of the coordinating committee, I've learned more about social media, and I've seen the impact of the simple act of sharing a well-thought-out idea.

    Nov 7 2011: The TED influence is so quiet and calm....for me theres no impact. Just a nice breeze from a sea of ideas and concepts. TED is like a sail navegating in a sunny day.

      Nov 9 2011: Jamie...love your comparison to TEDx as a nice breeze from a sea of ideas and concepts. Don't you think that now and then a stronger gust of wind comes along and moves you faster and farther? It's been that way for me.

        Nov 26 2011: Randall it could be as you said. If theres a strong wind in the open sea I can set my sails and command my ship...but not all the TED winds are strong or good, so sometimes I decide to let it pass.

        Really the "fast" things are not good enough...are "fast- idious" Im not in hurry...farther?....maybe but first I have to see my own maps to decide if I need or want to go.
