The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf We live in a world where virtually every human being has the ability to capture and share information instantaneously all over the world. Where anyone from any part of the planet can influence the way others think from all corners of the world. How will we as a society handle this pivotal moment in our history where so much is changing so fast? How do we disseminate between what's real and what's fake in a world that changes by the hour? This presentation discusses our role as human beings in how we are shaping what others think by the powers of technology and social media. And how this great power can be used for monumental change in both positive and negative ways.
