5 Great TEDxTalks Not on TED.com

Posted by TEDxPhoenix on Sunday, August 14th, 2011 in TED Talks

If you’re unfamiliar with TEDx, then think of it as an independently organized, hyper-local version of the TED Conference where organizers around the world attempt to bring a taste of TED to their community. In addition, every TEDx speaker has a shot at making it to TED.com if the folks at TED HQ feel that the talk is TED worthy, and here’s where it gets a bit tricky.

Now consider this, in order for a TEDxTalk to be considered for TED.com, it first has to be viewed by the folks at TED. Taking into account that there’s an average of 300 TEDxTalks being generated each month, then it’s obvious that the folks at TED have a lot of work ahead of them.

So with this in mind, we at TEDxPhoenix wanted to see if we could bring attention to some great TEDxTalks we’ve come across on the TEDx YouTube Channel, that we feel deserve a spot on TED.com. Also in the spirit of TED, we’re avoiding self-praise by not including TEDxPhoenix talks, but do check them out if you get a chance.

By the way, if any TEDx organizers post their own version of “5 Great TEDxTalks Not on TED.com”, then contact us and we’ll link to your post at the end of this article. So without further ado, here’s our list of five great TEDxTalks not (yet) on TED.com!
