In the spirit of “ideas worth sharing,” TED will introduce a new program that allows anyone in the world to host their own TED event. It hasn’t even fully launched but events are already occurring in Taipei, Tokyo, Melbourne, Austin and USC. Currently working on the new identity (shown) and the guidelines that will go out globally. It’s great fun and it looks like it’s leading to a much larger branding system for all of TED (TED Global, TED India, etc). More coming soon!
