Eureka! After a few applications with no response, I was finally invited to a TED event in Washington DC! TED is a conference series bringing together the world’s greatest minds in the areas of Technology Entertainment and Design. Famous speakers to talk at TED events included Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Bono, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Larry Page & Sergey Brin and the list goes on . . . forever. At this satellite event in DC, one of my favorite bloggers, David Armano (writer of Logic + Emotion), is speaking along with experts in online marketing, sports media, bar tending, stand up comedy, and “the self.” Which works out well, since I’ve been writing a business model for a hilarious online sports bar for alcoholic existentialists. Check out TED to see if any events are coming up in your area.
