This past November I was one of two alumni speakers at TEX: Tufts Idea Exchange
. TEX is an event inspired by and modeled on TED
. If you are not familiar with TED
, do yourself a favor and click that link. Be sure that you don't have anyplace important to be for a while.
I'm coming back to this long-overdue post now in part because I've noticed through social media that they're soliciting speakers again, and to urge anyone among my readership in the Tufts community to apply. And also, anyone with access to any similar events, like TEDx
for instance, to make a point of going and/or somehow getting involved. (I met many of the people involved in TEDxSomerville
, and they are awesome, one of the TEX
presenters will actually be speaking at their event). For something even more informal, check out NerdNite
I want to talk specifically about TEX
, and generally about what events like this have to offer. Let's start with my presentation and go from there...
