We just tested the Livestream coming from TED 2014, and we are good to go for tomorrow’s Kickoff+LIVE event at SAYSí. We are SOLD OUT for tomorrow’s event, so if you registered and cannot attend, please go back to EventBrite and release your ticket so we can let someone from the waitlist have your spot.
Looking for SAYSí?
The Kickoff + LIVE event runs from 6:30 – 9:30 pm – and we’ll share as much TED goodness as we can in that short timeframe. Some folks have asked why we aren’t running the streaming event all day; frankly, we need more volunteers and sponsors to pull that off. The kickoff event is your chance to step up, meet our volunteer organizers, sign on as a volunteer and join our team. With enough dedicated volunteers and sponsors on board, perhaps next time we’ll be able to share more of the main events coming from TED.
What to Expect at the Kickoff Event
Organizers and committee chairs will be on hand to explain volunteer, speaker and sponsor opportunities, and to take your suggestions for themes, issues, speakers, and sponsors. We will also LIVESTREAM and run talks from the main TED event happening this week.
Check the TED 2014 program. To celebrate TED’s 30th anniversary, they’re bringing back 50 “TED All Stars” for short talks and updates, including Tim Berners-Lee, Sir Ken Robinson, Jill Bolte-Taylor and many more. See if your own favorite is there.
We have the option to play recordings of talks that will have occurred by 4:00 pm Tuesday (including All-Stars), or livestreaming what’s actually on the main stage. Because the event occurs in Vancouver, they are operating be 2 hours earlier than our local time. I’m personally hoping we will be able to livestream Charmian Gooch’s talk on fighting corruption (some of you long-timers may recall Lawrence Lessig’s TEDxSanAntonio 2010 talk) – but that will depend on TED’s mainstage running on time.
See you tomorrow. If you were unable to get a ticket to this event, please know that this will NOT be the last opportunity you have to get involved with TEDxSanAntonio in 2014.
