Finding community online: Erik Deckers at TEDxFortWayne

4y ago


ERIK DECKERS Exploring the disruption of society from the introduction of both internet and social media with consideration for the possibility that these modalities have created newer and better communities. 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)
