TED : Ideas worth spreading
Getting access to great ideas hasn’t always been easy. But good thing times have changed. The internet has made sharing ideas a breeze, and no one is doing it better than TED: Technolgy, Entertainment and Design. TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Twice a year, TED holds this conference where thought leaders from around the world give some mind-blowing talks and then TED posts them online so anyone can watch them for free and be inspired by the great ideas and journeys.
What is TEDx ?
TEDx is a way for anyone to run a mini TED-like event in their own town, holds talks around issues that matter to your community, free from corporate, political and religious agendas. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.
TEDxMSRIT is an independently organised TEDx event organised in our very own college Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore. TEDxMSRIT strives to bring together people from different walks of life and uniting them to form a community that brings about new ideas. Our reputed line of speakers is a part of this community that we're trying to build. The speakers are monumental in contributing ideas that were instrumental in changing their lives for the better!
TEDxMSRIT 2020 : The Domino Effect
TEDxMSRIT 2020 is the event of this chain TEDxMSRIT for the year 2020. Every year, we have this event along with a theme associated with it to set the tone of the event with an overarching question or statement. The theme for this year is “The Domino Effect”. It means a series of cascading events that happen with us because of the steps we take every day. Many little things in our life no matter how insignificant they may seem, affect our lifestyle and decisions. It may seem chaotic but when you look at the greater picture, you see all those decisions making your life a meaningful pattern. This pattern was generated by nothing but your ideas to lead you to your success.
