TED Comes to Vancouver

This week I was thrilled to discover that the annual TED conference, something I’ve been inspired by for years online, is now being extended to communities worldwide.

As Malcolm Gladwell’s said (and has been criticized for)… creating strong ties offline is important. I agree to a large extent; and it’s events like these (and Petcha Kutcha) that create a greater sense of community and deepen relationships. They reveal opportunities, inform, facilitate dialogue, energize change, and inspire innovation. And that is good news.

172 TEDx events took place in 53 countries last month.
