http://www.tedxeuston.com Emeka Okafor was the co-curator of the first TEDGlobal to take place in Africa (Arusha, Tanzania) in 2007. At the time, he was one of the earliest bloggers on technology news coming out of the African continent. Emeka brought together the best the continent had to offer to one of the most inspirational events of our time, on the African continent. He lives and works in New York, and is currently the curator of a roving annual event; "Makerfaire" that brings together inventors from African countries every year.
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)
