TEDxConstitutionDrive 2013: Time

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Auto-Vino (see times)
Value your time? Interested in hearing how technology has changed our view on time? Join us at TEDxConstitutionDrive 2013 to hear amazing stories and perspectives on TIME.

We have an exciting list of speakers already lined up who will explore time from different and uncommon perspectives, including:

-Time in prison
-Appreciating time after coming very close to death
-Time as it relates to the history of Iran
-Time as an ingredient in the cooking process

Since we like to keep our conference small to develop an intimate environment and enable everyone to meet and get to know each other, be sure to purchase your tickets soon before they run out!

You can buy your ticket and find additional details about the event, including a tentative agenda at: http://tedxconstitutiondrive2013-eorg.eventbrite.com/.

Venue:
Our venue is the phenomenal classic car warehouse and winery (yes, both!) Auto-Vino. If you love one-of-a-kind fabulous cars and wine-tasting, in addition to great ideas and people, this is the TEDx for you.

TEDx:
In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxConstitutionDrive, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxConstitutionDrive, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

TEDxConstitutionDrive is a nonprofit event. Ticket fees will go towards event planning and speaker expenses. Fees cover speaker sessions, snacks, and lunch.


About TED:
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.

TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program,helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
