TEDx Amsterdam

Subtitle; What I wish I was doing today

TEDx is an independently organised event in the style of TED, and today there is a TEDx running in Amsterdam. They’ve got a fantastic line up including Kevin Kelley, who is one of the most intresting thinkers on future of technology and our use of it. They bill it as “In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.”

It’s enormously popular so that the 450 seats at the Tropen Museum are filled (and were already filled by the time I heard about it), so there are at least 4000 people who wanted to be there and can’t. TEDx set up various simulcast venues, those closest to me are also filled.

So I have the laziest option of all. I’ve picked up the streaming video site. I’m at home on the couch, watching TED. What a great Friday.
