From the TEDx Boston site: “What happens when a group of people rally around a radical idea and set in motion unlimited possibilities for a brighter future? A Revolution.
“More than two centuries ago, ordinary citizens in Boston dreamed of a democracy and launched a revolution that changed the course of human history in extraordinary ways. That innovative spirit still thrives today in our forward thinkers and accomplished doers. At TEDxBoston, we celebrate their ideas and their passion for improving the way citizens of the world learn, live, give, work, and play.”
