    Hello I am a university student from the Republic of Mexico, specifically the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos in Mexico at present there are few people who have knowledge of exitencia of this page, so I can propose to give more weight to the page advertising since their content is really good, I hope to seek to establish agreements in Mexico, we would appreciate your reply, thanks.

    This is the first year we are launching the TED in cinemas program. We are excited about the long term potential. This year we were only able to set up distribution deals in Australia and the US. We are hoping to grow this program in the years to come.

    What about the none US citizen who would love to see this in the theatres??!
    Don’t underestimate your followers world wide. We would love to connect here with you from the Netherlands. As I am sure many other countries would too.
    Good luck with TED. For now will still be following everything via the web. Thanks for that!
    Keep going strong! Rodien.

    Funny story: I’m the projectionist at the Laemmle Music Hall, and whilst I was waiting for a TED lecture to load on this shoddy internet connection, I glanced over at what the schedule of movies are for next week. Imagine my surprise to see “TED (HD Live Video Conference)”! I’m beaming with pride. Thank you so much for doing this!
