I'm one of the organizers for the TEDx NYED conference taking place on March 6, 2010 in New York City. TEDx is a TED-style event, but is completely independently organized. The organizers are mostly educators, but all our passionate about the future of technology in education.
The speakers are amazing, and they include: Larry Lessig (author, professor at Harvard Law School), Gina Bianchini (founder of Ning), Andy Carvin (NPR), Mike Wesch (professor at Kansas State, YouTube phenom) and many more...
You sort of can't afford to miss this event. Because of the limited size (intentional), we ask you to apply. If accepted, the cost of admission is $40. Best deal in town if you ask me!
Looking forward to meeting you all there.
