Inspiring leaders, innovators, artists, educators, scientist, students and visionary entrepreneurs were brought together at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, Ca for the TEDx Orange Coast 2013 “Beautiful Minds” conference this past weekend sharing their ideas and point of views to encourage continuous conversations that lead to value generating actions. The TEDx program gives communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level and they are planned and coordinated independently. Starting in 1984 TED is a nonprofit bringing the world’s leading thinkers and doers that are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes in three key categories: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Talks are then made available free online.

More than 1500 TED Talks are now available, with more added each week and has become broader with more conference categorie featuring locally and all over the world which includes: the TED Conference, TEDActive, TEDGlobal, TEDIndia, TEDWomen, TEDYouth, TED Prize, TED Talks, TED Fellows, The TED Open Translation Project and TEDx. Today, TED is best thought of as a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.
