TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s
TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDx events are organized by curious individuals who seek to discover ideas and spark conversations in their own community. TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED. The TEDx Event at MU is an intricately planned occasion, where speakers from varied backgrounds visit the campus and give technical talks on the topic of their expertise. The theme for this year’s TEDx is “The Small Picture”. The theme for this edition is primarily motivated by a rejection of an ‘end justifies the means’ attitude. The question to be addressed is, why the process is kept from the limelight and also focus on the minute, but nonetheless essential things that form one’s everyday life, the things in the background and the things forgotten. The Small Picture is a contrast to the big picture we see every day.
