2018 Annual Event


About Bubble


About the Theme

An event centered around interpretation.

Bubble? Weird. Why would we make that a theme?

Well, it is up to your imagination. What do you think of? Actual bubbles? Bubble baths? Memories of childhood? The housing bubble? There are so many things you can take out of this one word. And that’s the beauty of this event, it is flexible, intriguing, and best of all up to your imagination. Whatever “bubble” may elicit in you may be different from the person sitting next to you, and that’s what makes it so wonderful. In the many ways to go through life, everyone has an idea of what a bubble is. This event is designed to consider other possibilities, inviting you to experience a bubble that is different from your own.

What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

What is TEDx?

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. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

What is TEDxUCSD?

TEDxUCSD’s mission is to bring together leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in and to any discipline – technology, design, science, humanities, business, entertainment, and much more. We aim to engage, inspire, and celebrate all generations of the UCSD family.
