why do tedx talks not count as seminars/conferences attended? :(

Justine: If you don't list down all the books, blogs, articles, and videos you've consumed, then what makes going to a live TedX talk different? It's roughly an article that's come to life or a video you could've watched in your downtime. And tbh, there's no guarantee that it's going to be a good talk.
This also isn't an industry specific conference that gave you specialized knowledge and contacts. Most likely you went with a bunch of friends and enjoyed the day, and that's totally ok. That's what a TedX is (for the audience). A way to enjoy a free day.
