- 2013: The Other Things... - 2012: Resonate - 2011: Where do we go from here? - 2010: Expanding Perceptions
Introduction

At Rice University, on September 12, 1962, John F. Kennedy made a speech in which he declared that we would land on the moon within a decade. On that day, in our great city, Kennedy bravely announced: "We choose to go to the moon in this decade, and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard." 2503 days later, we achieved that audacious mission, stepped foot on another world for the first time, and firmly established ourselves as universal explorers. This tremendous and difficult challenge took the combined efforts of thousands of creative, motivated and audacious individuals, and inspired many more to imagine their own “moonshots.”

Now...what about the other things?

On October 12, 2013, 51 years and 1 month since that day, we will come together for the fourth annual TEDxHouston. On that day, in our great city, we will listen to, engage with, and be inspired by The Other Things, moonshots that are audacious and brave by their own rights. We will explore what things are changing the-world-as-we-know-it, and what other things are still left unturned.

Join us on this mission to explore a bold new world.
