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).

An "idea guy" with eclectic interests in prose, engineering and music, Siyu, a junior at ASB, is no stranger to pondering the vast and complex world around him while looking for answers to life's big questions.
