TEDxLive is an extension of the TEDx program, launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are TEDx events built around the live webcast of TED Conferences. TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience live sessions of the TED Conference; events can be simple viewing events, and may also host live speakers. TEDxPhoenixville is pleased to host a free webcast of all four available TED2012 sessions on Wed, Feb 29 from 11:30am EST thru 9pm EST. We will not have any live speakers that day, but instead plan on immersing ourselves in the fantastic day that TED has planned. No tickets are required, but seating is limited to 50.
