How do we capture the collective wisdom and engage the global TEDx communities?

There have been over 1400 TEDx events globally. Each of these TEDx events are nurturing incredible local communities. These communities value education and the power of ideas to change the world. How do we connect these communities and share their collective wisdom?

How do we help these communities take action, both locally and globally?

    Mar 14 2011: I feel for this to happen you would have to start by not letting Ted act as mojo for online users but as an actual thinktank with a root-like structure which collects and gathers a consent that can be viewed at all times. There are lots of threads, there is lots of stuff which needn't be here. I feel to really make something out of Tedx and Ted conv and the whole possible universe you have to figure out what you want this to be. The network has huge knowledge but it needs forming, it needs a wiki 3.0. I am pretty sure this will not happen from within Ted but it will happen sooner or later.

    Best wishes

      Building a root-like structure which collects and gathers content (Memes) that can be viewed, judged, manipulated and disseminated at all times by all of man kind.

      yes;-)

      I have been watching from the sidelines for 14 years - It is time I step up and DO!!!!

      Kinda committalingly,
