Live from #TEDactive #TED2011

1 Mar

Enjoying day one of the talks – here at Palm Springs – already we have had messages from the International Space Station. Plus great talks from Wadah Khanfar who runs Al Jazeera, Handspring who created Warhorse puppets, and Eric Whitacre who created the global online choir.

Eclectic – yes. Inspiring – most definitely.

Someone asked me what I it was like. After some thought it became very clear to me – it is like a whole year of college or university – but compressed into five days. But….it is the best bits, it is fresher’s week and all the best moments from college life, the best conversations, discoveries, parties, lectures, people, super-distilled into a protein filled, caffeine driven fast ride of a week. Half way through day one – my notepad is filled with notes, doodles, thoughts, names, URL’s and contacts.

So back to the ride…
