I Will Be a Speaker at TEDxCarletonU


http://carletoninnovation.com/tedx/

I have been chosen, with four other people, to give a TEDx talk for Carleton University on March 30, 2010.

I am a big fan of TED talks. I watch them every chance I get. They tend to be 20 minute talks discussing interesting ideas, tailored to a lay audience. I like almost all of them.

The TED organization licenses it's brand out to smaller conferences, each of which is called a TEDx. There was a TEDx for Ottawa and a TEDx for Toronto, for example. Each of the five speakers will give a talk, and two actual TED talks will be shown on video. Seating is limited, so if you want to come you must apply. I don't see instructions yet on the site for how to apply, but with hope they'll be coming.

I will be speaking about the science of imagination: how it can be done, and what my lab is doing to understand imagination. Check out my new logo.

I'm REALLY looking forward to this! And through an entirely unrelated search, I am now that much more inclined to check out IT this Sunday!

Looking forward to TEDx CarletonU, and looking forward to meeting you!
