I'm super excited to be at the TedX Fargo event today! I have a volunteer shift (because I'm all about many hands making light work) from 6 a.m. - 10 a.m. and then I'm free to enjoy the incredible 23 speakers from around the country, not to mention the event promises to "change my life". And, I fully expect it to do just that!
Who am I most looking forward to hearing? That's a tough one! It ranges from Nathan Clark, Wondermade's Chief Marshmallow Agent (have I ever mentioned I LOVE marshmallows?), to AJ Leon, an ex-banker turned humanitarian and Founder and Artistic Director of Misfit Incorporated. That's only two of the 23 - all will give me a morsel to walk away with, I'm sure!
Aren't familiar with TED? It started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment, and design (TED - get it?) converged. Since then it has taken on a life of it's own with talks covering practically everything under the sun. TedX's are local, independently organized TED events.
One of my favorite programs on Minnesota Public Radio is the Ted Radio Hour, Sunday nights at 6 p.m. It's a great way to end my weekend with a little thought provoking material. Even my kids have enjoyed listening to it on occasion.
How about you? Do you have a favorite TedTalk? I'd love to know about it!
