College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita hosted its first TEDx event last Thursday, giving speakers in various areas of technology, business and education a chance to share their knowledge the topic of connectivity — specifically how connected communities can increase the wellbeing of individuals, and as a result, improve global welfare. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
