Disruption is usually unwelcome. It represents conflict, chaos, and potential danger. We discourage disruptive behavior in our homes and our societies, often favoring passivity and compliance.
But disruption can be a positive – sometimes vital – catalyst for change. It can challenge old assumptions, ignite conversations, activate authorities and expose new possibilities. Disruption can shed a unique light on difficult issues, giving a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges of our global community.
To solve the most intractable challenges in health and development, we need positive disruption. It is the path to true progress.
TEDxChange 2013 takes place on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 9:00am PDT in Seattle, Washington. Themed Positive Disruption, TEDxChange 2013 speakers will challenge preconceived ideas, spark discussion, engage leaders and shed light on new perspectives.

Would you run a website without analytics, or a business without performance reports, or a budget? Reports and Analytics are fundamental to success. You have to be able to measure how well you’re doing in order to improve, in order to change.
Yet what about your life, your health, your productivity?
Do you know how many emails you replied to last week? how much time you spent on Facebook vs in Excel? what you ate, how healthy you are?
Personal analytics are about to hit the mainstream, let’s take a look at what they can do for you…
