    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    Rest in Peace Jeff. I'm sure you've ignited what needed igniting...and the flame still burns bright in your absence.

    I like that he isn't just saying "pay attention", but he explains how to pay attention and why to pay attention and why it is important.
    Very good ted talk to me :)

    Conscious capitalism... BS we need regulations on irresponsible industries and to eliminate those companies that are not serving the social good.

    Some good wisdom here. I know the dogs on my grooming table (surprise! it's haircut day for Pup!) only relax and quit defending themselves when they see you are paying attention to what they're saying (or trying their best to say, you know?) You give them info to work with and positive feedback, plus a cpl clear boundaries. Then trust builds and they relax enough to play and to think brushing isn't half bad!

    If only all companies were run as well as those he mentioned, We would have a holistic society that could survive without having Unions . the sad truth is, that's not the world we live in. The world we live in is dominated by greed for-profits.

    Oh my God! Wonderful and insightful speech! I am so sorry this special man is no longer among us. However, I understand he was a single parent to his daughter... Well, I hope that the daughter will carry on her father's legacy and also enrich it with her own excellence. When you have such a teacher by your side, you are meant to be successful.

    I already stopped watching after 20 sec, when he said "what an awesome day", "what an awesome community". When a speaker uses these silly platitudes at the start of a talk the rest can not be interesting.

    Sharing the Legacy of Jeff Klein, dreamer, entrepeneur and go getter. So grateful he passed Gaia Farm off to me....he passed on in his sleep yesterday to much surprise of his many loved ones. That makes this Monunmental achievement and Ted Talk that much more significant. Posted only 11 days before passing. With great respect and appreciation for having known this man. May he rest peacefully and guide us on.....
