    Feb 3 2012: You've already had some good advice so I won't repeat it but I will say this... There are 3 things critical to making your TEDx event the best it can be. First, the Team. Get the mix right and you've already won half the battle. Second, focus on your Performers/Speakers. Help them tell their stories the best they can. And lastly, think about the Theme. This is what gives your TEDx identity. A TEDx can be anything you want it to be. The Theme is its spirit. It is that single defining image which everyone will take back home with them so give it some time and thought.

    Ok. I'm done :)

        Yeah I had some money saved up so the TEDxSummit looks like it'll work out for me. And I know how expensive tickets are from that part of the world ! I was in Argentina, Brazil and (mostly) Chile for 5 or 6 weeks and I loved it there so might be going back soon !
