Live from TED
The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.
For the first time, TED made live-streaming content from one day of the annual TED conference in Long Beach available to local and independently organized TEDx groups. TEDxRedondoBeach and TEDxManhattanBeach collaborated to bring one day of the TED conference to an audience of avid TEDsters via a direct live stream connection.
Projected on the large screen at the corporate offices of Ignited in El Segundo, the live feed incorporated more than 20 talks and performances by people from around the world who had been invited to present at the TED conference. Facilitated discussion about the content of the talks took place between segments from 8:30 to 7:00 pm. More than 70 people participated in the livestreamed event, coming from the greater Los Angeles area and beyond. Speakers included Elon Musk of Space X, musician Amanda Palmer, young nuclear scientist Taylor Wilson, designer Alastair Parvin, grassland ecosystem pioneer Allan Savory, and public art instigator Lesley Perkes.
