If you didn’t, you won’t.
For those of you who have yet to hear of the TED conference, you’re in for a treat. It’s a conference of ideas, or actors on ideas, each presented in less than 18 minutes. TED video tapes and freely shares all of the presentations so you can find a wealth of thought provocation. You can subscribe to see what’s new. Each TED presentation that I’ve seen has gotten me to think in a new way.
Because TED has become so popular and is only held once a year in a global location to a limited audience, it has begun to expand its format to include independent, local, TED events. Hence, TEDx. San Antonio just hosted its first, led by a team of generous free-thinkers with a focus on quality experiences. We received 4 presentations in an hour and then had long, generous breaks to talk about what we were thinking with other Teddites.
You can see my notes on it here. They capture only the stuff that piqued my interest at that very moment in time. On a different day, my notes would be different. But not to worry. . . you can see videos of the entire performances on YouTube.
Okay, the notes.
