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 Coconut Grove or Miami is misleading. For more information on TEDx, visit

Members of the press are not allowed to take pictures of or film/videotape our TEDx event. Instead, our in-house photographer will share selections with the media.
