TEDxManhattan is all about Fair Food. Who would be up for organizing a viewing party March 7, 2015? We could watch the live webcast with others nationwide. TEDxSanAntonio Food Salon organizer and VP of the Food Policy Council of San Antonio, Leslie Provence, says this video sums up why she and her colleagues work so hard on this issue.
Simon Anholt is the author of the “Nation Brands Study,” about how each country perceives other countries. From that data and a bunch of other measures, he and others have constructed a GoodCountry index to rank countries by 35 measures of their impact on the rest of the world – whether they are a net positive, or a net negative, contributor to the “global commons.” Pretty fascinating, r
Here’s our organizer Rebecca Helterbrand describing the phenomenal lineup of events at tomorrow’s TEDxSanAntonio Salon: Children’s Mental Health: Where Are the Casseroles event. There’s still time – just barely – to register for the event. See you there!
As the current TEDxSA licensee, I’m privileged, and often humbled, to interact directly with other licensees worldwide. As we’re well into the heavy lifting season for Ideas In Action (and Rebecca Helterbrand and the Salon team for tomorrow’s “Children’s Mental Health: Where are the Casseroles” event) – it lifted my spirits to see the following message from our fellow TEDx licensee in Iraq.

TEDxSanAntonio actively seeks applications for our 2014 event – especially performers such as musicians, actors, poets, dancers, visual artists, and multimedia artists. Art is often a source of Ideas Worth Spreading – and words and speeches are not the only way to spread an idea.

The organizers of the upcoming TEDxSanAntonio Salon, Redefining Beauty and Gender Stereotypes, appeared today on WOAI’s San Antonio Living show. Watch the video. Thanks to WOAI’s producers for allowing us to spread the word.

One of the requirements for a TEDx event is for us to watch some existing TEDtalks. Here are the talks we watched as part of the Minds Wide Open event. Let us know what you thought! Ramesh Raskar: Imaging at a Trillion Frames Per Second. Doris Kim Sung: Metal that Breathes. Derek Sivers: How to Start a Movement. Note: This last one is a particular favorite of our volunteer crew. We ran it in our 2010 event as well.
Rehearsals are Tomorrow! The amazing TEDxSanAntonio Minds Wide Open Speakers will be rehearsing at Rackspace tomorrow, preparing to deliver the talks of their lives. Our tech production crew, headed by George Riley, Bob Hotard and the capable folks at JSAV, will run through the show, rehearsing the complex transitions required for this combination live performance, video shoot, and webcast event. We’re so pleas
