While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands.
The 'x' in 'TEDx' stands for "independently organized events." Any headline or text that implies "TED" is coming to Long Beach or SoCal is misleading.
