About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California almost 30 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes on a diverse mix of topics. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The TED2014 Conference will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast in neighboring Whistler. TEDGlobal 2014 will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; and TEDBooks, short e-books on powerful ideas. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

You can always count on 2013 Canadian National Champion Harrison Lee for a great recap video! Here is Harrison’s look at the 2014 Pacific Northwest Regional event, recently held in Seattle, WA. PNWR is the first NYYL Regional event of 2014, and a great way to kick off the contest season. Click here for full results from the event.
This is the 10th year of PNWR, organized by National YoYo Master Nathan Crissey. Next year he’ll be handing the contest over to TMBR’s Colin Leland and it’s moving up to Portland. Nathan had an absolutely amazing run building this event up into something truly first class…congratulations on an amazing run, Nathan!
CLYW superstar Harrison Lee never fails to amaze us with the places he turns up! In the past year he filmed a cameo in an upcoming Seth Rogan film, won the Canadian National Championships, had paintings of himself auctioned off for charity, and last week he grabbed a Puffin 2 and hopped up on-stage with the Barenaked Ladies for the SECOND time. (Click here for video of the first appearance, three years ago.)
Harrison Lee, you’re our hero!
Barenaked Ladies Fun Fact: Ed Robertson, the lead singer, was the president of his high school’s yoyo club!
Canadian National Champion Harrison Lee has now been yoyoing for three years, and here’s his video to show you how far he’s come.
Just in case the “Canadian National Champion” part didn’t clue you in, he’s amazing. Harrison is hands down one of our favorite players, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t agree that he’s one of the best in the world. We’re really hoping to see him representing Canda in Prague at this year’s World YoYo Contest!
