TEDx at Wake Forest University, Winston Salem, NC

I have my reserved space! I registered today online for the February 25th TEDx right here in Winston Salem! TEDx,

What's TEDx? Well, directly from the TEDx website, "TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives." TEDx is a locally sponsored version of the event.

If you want to join me (and all the really erudite and cool people of the Triad, NC), you can register here: TEDx Wake Forest University. You can catch more on Twitter @TEDxWakeForestU
