Featured speaker in April 2012, Where I gave a talk on “The Power of Do-It-Together.”
The theme “At the Heart of Discovery” was inspired by the inspiration and ambition of the University of Minnesota’s greatest inventors, scientists, and thinkers that shine and echo from the past. The event represented a chance to rediscover the University. It told the story of a future or the world due to the actions, ideas, and dreams of our fellow University members.
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.)
