What is TEDx
In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxConstitutionDrive, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxConstitutionDrive, live speakers and TEDtalk videos will combine to spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
2013 TICKETS ARE OPEN! MAY 4, 2013
We're so excited about our theme of TIME. If you want to come join us, we'd love to have you. Tickets are limited - we're keeping our event small.
Our 2013 Theme is TIME.
We are excited to announce the theme of this year's TEDxConstitutionDrive: Time!
We will explore time from different and uncommon perspectives to better understand the concept of time, including the science of time, how we manage time and how humans experience time, particularly in different setting including prisons, without freedom, and hospitals, with an uncertain future. This year's speakers come from varied exceptional backgrounds, including academia, technology and the DIY movement. Confirmed speakers include Professors Abbas Milani from Stanford, and Chuck Darrah of San Jose State; Blaine Dehmlow of TechShop SF, and Isa and Ana Stenzel of the Power of Two, among others.
We try to make this an intimate and low-key event where people who are deeply interested in the topic can engage with each other on a personal level. Please come with an open mind and a sincere desire to connect with the ideas and the other attendees. Our venue is the phenomenal classic car warehouse and winery (yes, both!) Auto-Vino. If you love one-of-a-kind fabulous cars and wine-tasting, in addition to great ideas and people, this is the TEDx for you. After we finish the speaker sessions at 4pm, we will transition to the winery counter for an optional wine-tasting flight (included in your ticket).
