XRD = Crossroads
Our theme this year is "crossroads." A crossroads is a place where two things impact one another in a way that creates change. It's where technology impacts behavior, where beliefs create ideas or where different branches of social science come together to create a whole new philosophy or field. The possibilities are endless, and the end results more powerful than we can imagine.

Welcome to the inaugural year of TEDxPortland, an official TEDx licensee. At its core, Portland, Oregon, is a city with imagination and an insatiable desire to learn and to create. Please join us on Twitter and Facebook in celebrating what we hope will be the first of many exciting and inspiring TEDxPortland events to come.

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).
