In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Linda Deck

Director, Bradbury Science Museum/Los Alamos National Laboratory
Linda Deck became the Museum Director for the Bradbury Science Museum in 2007. Prior to coming to Los Alamos, she worked at the Idaho Museum of National History and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Although her background is in Geology and Paleontology, Linda loves the breadth of topics and expertise that inform the Bradbury’s exhibits. Her goals at the Bradbury are to enable her staff to do their jobs well and to create exhibits that change visitors in positive ways. Deck is part of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park working group, which is made up of laboratory and Department of Energy Staff. This working group is working to find ways to allow visitors to experience the unique history of the Manhattan Project at locations where historical buildings still stand. “It’s not every day one gets the chance to help stand up a new national park,” she notes.
