It was my honor to be part of TEDx Tampa Bay for the second year in a row. As part of the team that produces the event, I have been able to work with people who are passionate about the community and the spirit of ideas and engagement represented by TED. This year I was also privileged to be one of the speakers at the event.
I have spoken around the world but I will say that TEDx was one the most pressure packed presentations I have ever given. The tight format is part of it but mostly it is the pressure of knowing you are part of the global TED community. The global audience for these talks is an amazing array of people who are also doing extraordinary things. This is a group that you want to impress and I hope the ideas contained in it are worthy to be part of that global conversation!
A $500 project comes to life in Tauranga, New Zealand!
The city is her canvas
Parks & Rec is known for being the "fun" department, but they are also part of the health and wellness side of the city.
Data-supported evidence is mounting that parks improve public health — leaders in parks and recreation are incorporating that information as they plan and design new community parks, green spaces and transportation options.
Thanks for the t-shirt! With Mobile, Alabama Mayor Sandy Stimpson.
Bandwidth and great connectivity are the necessary gas & electric of the 21st century.
Making connectivity more resilient is about more than floods.
