Baltimore has strong historic roots as an engine of growth.
Through resources such as the port, the railroads, the mills, and the factories, the city played a key role in the emergence of America as a global leader. Today, innovation and entrepreneurship are transforming the city and the world. New leaders and innovative thinkers are using bold ideas and emerging technologies to reshape the city and the region as a cornerstone for the New Economy.
The future of Baltimore is Re-Wired, and TEDx Baltimore is a forum for identifying, discussing, and building its foundation.
TEDxBaltimore will be held at Morgan State University on January 25, 2012.
What Is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBaltimore, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBaltimore event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
