Ideas worth spreading

TEDx Program

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.

TED vs. TEDx

the-difference-between-TED-and-TEDx@quora

What better way to answer this than to read what Chris Anderson (Owner of TED) says.

The difference between TED and TEDx events are that the former takes more of a global approach while the latter typically focuses on a local community that concentrates on local voices. “Officially, the ‘x’ in TEDx stands for independently organized TED event – but it’s more of a TED multiplied. It’s been the force that has taken TED across the planet and seeded all of these communities”.

难于掌控的生活回顾

手机

  • 忙碌的一天,从手机开始
  • 要吃饭,先从手机上看看做饭的视频

Pad

  • 起床了,准备做饭;虽然应该看炉灶,
  • 但是Pad在旁边。上面有些需要看看的吧

电脑、手表

  • pad上的事需要到电脑上处理,于是又换到了电脑上
  • 然后iWatch又来了提醒

心得

  • 这些设备将我的注意力转移走了,而重要的事没有做;
  • 浪费了很多时间,在不必要的事情上;
  • 每天花数小时,在这些设备上。

用行动去改变

  • 一个月,离开这些设备
  • 每天,限制用这些设备上的时间在30钟内
  • 所有设备加一起,一天最多30分钟
