TEDx talks from Burning Man 2011

Postby trilobyte » Thu Nov 17, 2011 10:48 am

As some of you may know, there was a pseudo TED Talks event held out on the playa in 2011. It was an independently organized event (called TEDx, they get no money, sponsorship, or promotional help from the main TED organization), and was approved by the BMOrg. In fact, several members of the org participated as speakers. Some interesting stuff, here are the embeds of the talks that have been posted. Interesting stuff.

I did not know that! I'll have to give those a listen. Great idea though. Hope they'll do it again in subsequent years.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
