TEDx

Starting today: More TEDx video on TED.com

Posted by: Emily McManus

Starting today, you’ll see a new talk every single day on the homepage of TED.com! Each Saturday and Sunday, we’ll be posting a great talk from one of the thousands of independent TEDx events around the world.

We launch with a powerful story from reporter Paul Lewis: Crowdsourcing the news. He uncovered evidence of a police coverup surrounding a killing — using bystanders’ cameraphones and Twitter.

Sunday’s featured talk is a passionate (and funny) plea for plain language from Sandra Fisher-Martins >>

With almost 10,000 TEDx talks and performances online now (dive into the TEDxTalks archive), there’s so much to choose from, we just had to take over the weekend. On weekdays, we’ll continue to feature great TEDxTalks too.

Do you have a favorite TEDx talk that you’d like to see featured? Post your suggestions in the comments below, or write to tedxtalks@ted.com.

    We need people like Paul Lewis in this world! we need clarity and resolve when tackling difficult issues. Convincing people to talk to you is difficult task and it take tenacity.

    I had seen this TEDx talk live and I want to recommend it for TED.com. It is really helpful in the current environment of startups being developed exponentially. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_R2Uct5q0w&feature=colike

    Hi John,

    Great question! We review every single TEDxTalk from our TEDx events, so the best thing you can do is curate a great program of speakers, rehearse their presentations, and follow our branding and sponsorship guidelines in your videos.

    That’s great news and will spur on our speakers. What are the criteria for being selected?

    I sheded tears every time I watched this TEDx Talk:
    Yasuo Sato – What makes us brave in disasters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DImGwfOrvd8

    About This Talk:
    Firefighter Yasuo Sato unveils his tough situations in leadership and heart-felt support for coping with meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant in the Tohoku region, Japan.
    His clearly-described story of what really happened at the nuclear plant after tsunamis received never-ending standing ovation from TEDxSeeds participants with tears.

    About the speaker:
    In the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11th, 2011, Yasuo Sato led all the 1,800 rescue units and 18,000 rescue members of the Tokyo Fire Department to cope with disasters in Tokyo and its neighboring area. Sato also led 30 hyper rescue units with 138 rescue members to fight fire and pump for Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant to prevent the escalation of meltdown, which is still fresh in our minds. After having been ordered the dispatch to the affiliated area in the Tohoku region by the governor of Tokyo, Sato mailed to his wife “I am leaving for Fukushima Nuclear Plant.” And he headed with his wife’s prayer response “Save Japan for us.” At the end of March, he retired of age. Sato goes all over the Japan to secure lives of youth and collect the wisdom of Japan and all over the world to prevent disasters even though their incidence rates are once in 1,000 years.

    Is there any chance that you’ll also add them to the TedtalksHD podcast?
    iTunes hasn’t picked up the new talks from this weekend yet.
