It was fabulous fun to be part of the TEDxPotomac event at the GWU campus. I tweeted about the event (evidence…see photo below of me caught in the act!), and you can find tweets at the hashtag #TEDxPotomac if you want to see the full spectrum, and you can also see all the photos of the event HERE.
For those of you who don’t know, TED is an annual conference in California and non-profit (TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design) that focuses on ideas worth spreading. Most people know it to be an AWESOME website that has hours upon hours of interesting and inspirational short talks (18 minutes or less) from AMAZING people. TEDx is the independently organized local TED-like experience created in the format of TED, also in the spirit of promoting ideas worth spreading. In the last year alone there have been 500 TEDx events all over the world.
Probably the best writeup of the event is here on ReadySetDC by Ally Behnke!
