TEDx presents "Engaging the World"


Here at Berkeley, the phrase “Sorry I can’t go out tonight…I have to study” is used more often than is probably healthy for a college campus full of young 18 to 20 somethings. Come on people, I want to know where the party’s at! Well now, thanks to the good people at TEDx, we don’t have to choose—the books and the party balloons are finally getting together to throw an intellectual bonanza. The event is called “Engaging the World,” and it is a celebration of the kind of innovation and fresh thinking that we at Berkeley strive for every day. Key speakers include: Chip Conley, founder and executive chairman of Joie de Vivre, California’s largest boutique hotel company; Jason Atwood, director of Ethiopia ConnectED, an education initiative inspired by research on self-organized learning environments; and Marti Spiegelman, host of Awakening Value: Shamanic Technologies of Consciousness and Success on the VoiceAmerica Web Radio Network. So if you’ve ever wanted to let loose while still cranking up that noggin, then may I suggest immediately going here for your chance to attend. See you there!

“Engaging the World” will be held on February 19, 2011 in Zellerbach Hall. The event begins at 10 a.m., and registration is from 8:30 a.m.
