I just learned that TED will be hosting an event in here Columbus on October 22. For those who don’t know what TED is, check out www.ted.com. To summarize, TED hosts talks about technology, innovations and ideas. Thats pretty much it but the talks are nothing short of ‘Grammys for Geeks’ and always have a very prestigious guest list. Even tickets for the TEDxColumbus show require an application, after which an invitation will be extended, if you are approved. Obviously I submitted my applicaton moments after learning about the event and I even volunteered to help organize the event, Columbus needs it [and it will be fun]! The application asked about my favorite TED talk [SixthSense by Pranav Mistry] which brought back the memory of watching the video and the chills that followed. I was truly inspired by the video and I think you might be too. Check it out below.
I’ll update once I hear back about my attendee and/or volunteer application. Enjoy the video!
Update: My application was accepted! I’ll be at CCAD on 10/22/10 for TEDxColumbus, hope to see some familiar faces!
