TEDxMarionSquare Curator Edith Howle said,
“We're very pleased to have been approved to host the live webcast from TED 2013: The Young, The Wise, The Undiscovered. This year, TED organizers staged a global talent search to bring together the most remarkable lineup in TED's history, resulting in the four-day stage program featuring TED's famous 18-minute talks, plus music, comedy, dance, short talks, video and other surprises. This is a great opportunity for Charleston residents interested in TEDxMarionSquare to see in action the level of thought, entertainment and intrigue the TED format will bring to this city during our own event.”
