Ideas Worth Spreading.

We joined other TED enthusiasts for TEDxOmahaSalon, a monthly conversation group. We watched two recorded TED Talks on a topic, then talked about the implications and opportunities.

Financial Literacy: A Terror of the Masses

This month we had two really great TED talks that took us into the murky world of finance, crime, poverty and wealth, and urged us to think about how our perception changes depending what lens we look through, what status we have, what social position we have, and what culture we live in. We joined in conversation and exploration of money – is it the root of all evil, does it drive us and determine our actions?


TEDxOmaha is an independently organized TEDx event. As a part of the global TED community, we connect locally to explore the ideas and situations that affect our cultures, environments, and minds. Most people are introduced to this remarkable collection of human experiences through recorded TED Talks. Through technology, we can hear stories of discovery, heartache, joy, introspection, and imagination from some of the world’s most amazing people. By creating events in Omaha, we produce an experience based on TED’s principles.

Who attends TEDxOmaha? Five hundred of our community’s most curious, forward-thinking people. Activists, artists, philanthropists, modern-day philosophers, policymakers, stay-at-home parents, and more. You, too, can gather with amazing people from our region who share their insights and accomplishments. It helps us witness what is happening – and what is possible – so we can be inspired to take bigger steps together. TEDxOmaha is held annually in October and offers monthly TEDxOmahaSalon events at The KANEKO.
