Do you remember Jurassic Park?

When Dr. Malcom, the mathematician, shared his thoughts on why it’s unwise to have T-rex and friends romping around on an island, John Hammond promised that precautions were already taken to make sure that nothing will go wrong. Dr. Malcom replies with disagreement. “Life finds a way,” he said.

What does it really mean?

Our last event, TEDxJakarta 11: Haphazard, talked about the excitement of uncertainty and unpredictability. While it seemingly stopped there, it continues here. Life finds a way indicates that we need to look even more close to acknowledge and respect the beauty of nature’s complexity and unpredictability. While its persona implies chaos or lack of rules, it just means that we haven’t revealed all of its underlying order, patterns, truths in systems that appear to be random.

Niyata in Sanskrit is the root of nyata in Bahasa Indonesia, carries the meaning of being real, distinct, or true.

TEDxJakarta 12: Niyata evolves around the celebration of order, abides to the notion that even nature most often works in alluring patterns, precipitated by the sum of many tiny-yet-meaningful and methodical inflections.

So join us, on a stage where no truth is too small,
no haphazardness is lacking patterns, and no chaos is without order.

Hello everyone, we are so excited to be back!! And there are some new things to note in our upcoming event.

First, there will only be one batch of registration.  We open the opportunity to register as general attendees for about two weeks. As usual, it is NOT a first-come, first-serve situation. There are more questions to answer, and you can find our reasoning on top of the form. So, do spare some time to fill in the form below as it will takes longer time than usual. 

Second, aside from the Attendee registration, we also open for Volunteer and Community Sponsor registration. Different deadlines apply, please click the link (button) below to see more details.

Oh, please note that it will be hold during Ramadan (again) with seating limitations (not our first time). When you are invited to be one of attendees, you will be asked if you do fasting or not for meal arrangement purpose, and as usual, we kindly ask that you attend all sessions from start to finish, to get the full spectrum of the TEDx experience.
