Local TEDx event slated April 11 at Tuscaloosa River Market

Another beneficiary of video ubiquity from YouTube to social media has been the TED (technology, entertainment and design) talks. Although TED seems a recent phenomenon, it started in 1984 as an intended one-time event with the slogan “ideas worth spreading.” TED has spread to Tuscaloosa. April 11, TEDxTuscaloosa will be held at the River Market, with eight speakers talking for under 18 minutes each.
