TED DIY

While I’m behind on the main session posts as I type this (three sessions behind now…), this is worth highlighting.

One of the unique things (and there are many) about TED@PalmSprings is the opportunity for audience members to get on stage and share their ideas worth spreading.

This morning, a bunch of us did just that. And it was AWESOME!
