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).

Don't turn into a boring adult! As a teenager, you slowly morph into one, but don't fall for that. Maximise the fun you have as a kid, and hold on to the laughter.

Privacy is for everyone. It's the right to have control of yourself. If you were asked to share all your passwords for your online accounts, would you do it?
