A partner in Bracewell & Giuliani LLP and co-author "Cyberspace and the Law," Cavazos gives compelling anecdotes about online economies and why gamers just might be our answer to democracy. His talk - "The Collapsing Magic Circle - Laws, Rules and Social Contracts in Virtual Worlds" In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
