TED Marathon in Melbourne

There's a TED Marathon being held in Melbourne on 13 December. Check out its Upcoming event profile for details but, basically, it'll be a "public screening of videos from the annual TED conferences held in Long Beach, California, with an opportunity for discussion between videos." The organizers also plan to launch a website where you can suggest specific talks for the screening. I'll let you know when they launch that.

I find TED talks hugely inspiring, thought provoking, moving, and informative and watch almost all the videos the TED people upload every week. I also hope to attend an actual conference some day...but who knows when (or if) that'll happen. For the time being, though, a local screening of TED videos is a pretty awesome idea and I hope everyone who reads this blog decides to attend.
