TED originally stands for "Tehcnology, Entertainment, and Design"; it's an annual US conference for people in those fields, presenting notable people from those fields; especially those having the quality of "ideas worth to share".

TEDx is localized version of TED, that allows a more localized contents to be presented as well; TEDxUbud is one of the TEDx events in Indonesia, and since it's held in Ubud the theme itself centered more toward design, ideas, and actions related with sustainability and harmony, but still contains the basic tenet of "ideas worth spreading".

While the "T" (technology) might scared the non-techie non-geeks, however you need to understand that TED is never a conference about technology alone :), but more toward how T, E, and D could work in betterment of your life. Therefore, I urge everyone having event the slightest interest in creative thinking, or looking for some mind refreshments, to attend these TEDx events. ;-)
