I’m totally in love with TED. It’s true . . .
So when I found out that TED was coming to town, the anticipation was nearly more than I could handle. March 22 is the magic date for Richmond’s very first TEDx conference. I filled out my application to attend more than a month ago, and March seemed so very far away. But now March is here, we’re 10 days in and in less than two weeks TED and I will finally meet face to face.
Here are just a few of the reasons I love TED:
Susan Cain – I’ve sung her praises before and I’m sure I will again. Her book is phenomenal. A must read for introverts and those that love them (so, you know . . . mostly everyone).
Neil Pasricha – I have shown this video many, many times in various classes that I teach. I have never gotten tired of it and the message always catches me at just the right moment (which is . . . awesome!).
Amanda Palmer – Connection, respect and authenticity as the new commodity for promoting one’s art. Beautifully simple. Perfectly conveyed. There’s also a really nice breakdown of the theme of her talk as it relates to publishing over at Huffington Post Books. (Amanda Palmer can sleep on my couch any time . . . seriously).
What about you? What made you fall in love with TED. Let me know in the comments below.
