"TedX" event coming to City of Utica

By ANDREW DONOVAN

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The series of popular web videos known as "Ted" are a myriad of forums and speakers on a wide range of topics and ideas and are now coming to Utica.

Ted stands for technology, entertainment, and design and in October, a gathering of local, regional and national speakers will come together for an event that will be recorded and possibly featured on Ted's national website.

The goal is to spread diverse ideas on different topics all in hopes of spurring conversation.

"So the style of the event, the brand of the event is Ted," said Ryan Miller, organizer of the TedX event. "so that means that we have speakers that have big ideas to deal with anything from education to design to community development, revitalization, a wide variety of topics are showcased locally."

The event takes place in October but due to Ted rules, organizers say they have to select an audience as diverse as the speakers.
