Andr?s Simonyi former ambassador of Hungary to the USA, musician. Markos Kounalakis journalist and writer. His wife, Eleni Tsakopoulos Kounalakis, is the current United States Ambassador to Hungary. In their opinion, rock and roll should take much credit for helping bring down the authoritarian regimes of Eastern Europe since it connected a generation across the East-West divide. Today's rock and roll, a life changing medium, metaphorically speaking is probably the social media. 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)
