    sometimes. some are interesting.
    The Tedx talks are something like an alternate seminar, they license the name but it autonomous or something like that. so you have Ted talks, and Tedx talks.

    Sometimes interesting, sometimes useful, but mostly just food for thought.

    There's always something you can learn, but I've found nearly all of the Ted & Tedx talks that I've seen to be more idealistic or practical for the speaker and a minority of others, rather than for the greater masses. As these episodes unfold, I try to envision myself adopting the philosophies in the same circumstances that they describe, and before long I end up concluding that they wouldn't be an exact fit for me. I find myself thinking, "well that makes a lot of sense for the situation you're describing, but that doesn't make it universally useful to everyone's situation(s)".

    I honestly don't know the difference if there is one. Could be two references to the same thing.

    wiki

    TEDx are independent events similar to TED in presentation. They can be organized by anyone who obtains a free license from TED, and agrees to follow certain principles.[76] TEDx events are required to be non-profit, but organizers may use an admission fee or commercial sponsorship to cover costs.[77] Speakers are not paid and must also relinquish the copyrights to their materials, which TED may edit and distribute under a Creative Commons license.[78]
