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 29 2011: I think it'll be helpful to put TEDx groups into several categorize and give them spaces to get to know each other. For example, let's make TEDxSouthEastAsia and put TEDxSeoul, TEDxShanghai, and TEDxTokyo. Each groups will have their own network and community, then they will try to bridge themselves to other similar sized groups. TEDxAfrica, TEDxEurope, TEDxAmerica, and so on. In the end, we can expect TEDxEarth.
