TEDxCambridge October 12, 2017!


I’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at TEDxCambridge on October 12, 2017!

TEDx Cambridge is one of the largest independently organized TEDx conferences in the world. Featuring a whopping 2,500 guests, six ideas, one performance, and a tech exhibition. It’s a celebration of the local community.

Since my fellowship at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and MIT Media Lab’s Civic Media group, I’ve been spending a lot of time in Cambridge, MA. It’s been a completely different experience from Portland, Oregon and the many places I’ve visited while on speaking tours. I’m looking forward to discussing a few new or (slightly new) topics in a whole new way this time. I’m also looking forward to working with Tamsen Webster, a speaking coach that will be helping all of the presenters. Though I’ve probably given 250+ talks at this point, I can always use all the help I can get!

If you’ll be in the Cambridge area in October, consider attending the conf! You can buy tickets here and check out the entire conference here. It will be at the Boston Opera House, which should have some pretty awesome acoustics (I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately while working on Designing Products with Sound with my co-author Aaron Day!

I spoke at TED back in 2010 and had a great (and terrifying) time, and I’m looking forward to this community-organized local conference.
