While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands.
The 'x' in 'TEDx' stands for "independently organized events." Any headline or text which implies "TED" is coming to Park City is misleading.

Shane CummingSeventh grade Parkite, Shane Cumming, can be found enjoying all this town has to offer year-round, skiing as many days as he can each winter then seamlessly transitioning into skateboarding when all the snow is gone. His other hobbies include making movies, photography, guitar, and lacrosse. His passion for snow and the local ski industry has helped Shane develop a strong interest in global warming and the effects that it is having on our community and the world. He dreams of making a significant change, one person at a time, one little thing here and there, to save our environment and the snow!
