TED: Who weren't we looking for?

Product-hawkers, jargon-junkies, dullards, wafflers, motivator wannabes, self-promoters, spouters of new-age fluff.

    Reflections onTEDx Sydney - -!/tedxsydney

    When it comes to creating live events, we're all learning on the job. Massive thanks to the organizers. This is an enormous undertaking.

    Saturday Night Live show, waiting for the good bits. Surprises made it worth the wait - boredom and bird guy.

    More cool things:
    Live Twitter Feed, Whiteboard Sketch Summary

    Question - how would we know that this event actually takes place in Sydney? I'd love to see TEDx to get people beyond the cool stage, out into the community.

    Kudos to ABC for taking this feed and converting into a broadcast with podcasts already on demand

    The idea of having an ideas festival is a popular idea indeed. But the idea that they’re universally ideal as a way of fostering creative new ideas is an idea that’s hotly contested.
