If you’re not aware, TEDx events are locally produced independent community events, with similar goals of the TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference: encourage sharing of ideas and innovations.
Here’s the promo video for this year’s TEDxUofM. At about the 47 second mark, you’ll see my photo (I’m wearing a purple/green sweater). The photo was taken at the first TEDxUofM last year.
Last year’s TEDxUofM event had 350 people attend, but close to 600 people applied. I had a great time last year, but I’m glad its moved to the Michigan Theater this year; the larger venue allows 1700 people to participate in the TED experience.

Keeping my fingers crossed I’m accepted to attend.
