Thank you so much to all who applied to attend TEDxHouston 2010.
We received so many amazing responses and cannot wait to share this day with you!


One of the keys to a successful TEDx is an interesting, diverse audience. We’re looking for people from various backgrounds – the arts, technology, science, government, business, non-profits etc. that are passionate, open-minded “do’ers”.

Why is the audience curated? This is an often asked and very good question... you'll find a great summary behind TED's audience curation reasoning here. Like TED, our TEDxHouston speakers aren't paid ... one reason they attend is for the passionate audience. We hope our audience is as equally excited about the guests around them as they are about the speakers.
