CORVALLIS, Ore. - Talks from February's sold-out TEDxOregonStateU conference at Oregon State University are now available for viewing online.

TEDx events feature talks, demonstrations or performances designed to foster learning, inspiration and wonder. They are independently organized events in the style of the TED conference. The theme for OSU's conference was "Disruption."
