TEDx Vienna


Bridging the Crack

Attended the 2nd ever TED conference

After 20 years, I remember so much

Many people who attended also said:

TED is one of the only conferences that has been able to survive for more than 20 years

How has the conference changed?

Why Vienna?

How to spread TEDx?

There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.
