While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands. The 'x' in 'TEDx' stands for "independently organized events." Any headline or text which implies "TED" is coming to Santa Cruz is misleading. For more information on TEDx, visit
