Disruption is usually unwelcome. It represents conflict, chaos, and potential danger. We discourage disruptive behavior in our homes and our societies, often favoring passivity and compliance.

But disruption can be a positive – sometimes vital – catalyst for change. It can challenge old assumptions, ignite conversations, activate authorities and expose new possibilities. Disruption can shed a unique light on difficult issues, giving a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges of our global community.

To solve the most intractable challenges in health and development, we need positive disruption. It is the path to true progress.





TEDxColumbus in conjunction with TEDxOhioStateUniversity will be hosting two viewing events to show a full day of TED talks from the 2012 Conference in Long Beach on March 1. One venue will be at the brand new TechDEC (a sister location to the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center), conveniently located at the Metro Center off Frantz Rd, where the three sessions (15 speakers) will be shown from 10am – 4pm. The same set of talks will be shown at the Barnes & Noble at  South Campus Gateway from 3pm – 9pm. These events are free and open to the public.

These events are part of our ongoing commitment to bring more opportunities to enjoy inspiration, innovation and idea sharing throughout the year. We are proud to have support from Turnstone and Resource Interactive to make these events possible.

By the way — If this is the first time you are seeing TEDxOhioStateUniversity it’s because their first live event is on March 31 at the Ohio Union! We are proud to be collaborating with them in this viewing event and expect to be doing more of the same in the future!
