My TED story

I've heard about TED from some friends, then I started watching TEDTalks and I ended up being in the board of 3 people that decided to organize a TEDx event in our community. This is the third edition already, 4th if we include the TEDLive from TEDGlobal, and I became the coordinator of the edition with high expectations, trying to raise the bar and increase the level of quality of the entire event: speakers, spread ideas, participants and organizers. Carpe Diem!
