From Antarctica! TEDxScottBase Viewing Party – Sunday, Jan 22, 2017

viewing_party_map

In 2017 New Zealand will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Scott Base, one of the oldest research facilities located in the international territory of Antarctica.

To mark the occasion, Antarctica New Zealand will host a first-of-its-kind event on ice, broadcast around the world: TEDxScottBase.

It aims to bring the very best ‘ideas worth spreading’ not only to the Antarctic, but to the world.

From Scott Base, Antarctica to the World

With an ambitious line up of speakers heading to the most isolated place on earth, TEDxScottBase is like no other event.

Instead of bringing guests to Antarctica, TEDxScottBase will be relayed to the world in live viewing events being held worldwide. All of this will take place one week after the event itself, on Sunday 22nd January 2017

TEDxSunnyvale is proud to host the only TEDxScottBase viewing party in California.

Our local Viewing Party is at TechShop, 300 S Second St, San Jose, CA 95113.

We will open for checkin on Sunday at 9:30am, and plan to start the Viewing Party at 10am.

There will be three sessions with around four hours from Antarctica. We’ll have breaks in between, with time to discuss the talks, plus a lunch break together.

There is no charge to attend.

I look forward to watching this extraordinary TEDx event with you!

TEDxSunnyvale: “Embracing Recklessness” – July 21st, 2012

Embracing recklessness

Event link on TED.com
SIGN-UP

San Jose, CA, United States
21 July 2012
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

2 sessions,
We expect to offer complimentary coffee and breakfast pastries
We will have sandwiches from Togos for lunch, courtesy of TechShop.
We’ll also have soft drinks and water to drink.

THEME:
The Theme for this event is “Embracing Recklessness”
In our brainstorming for a Theme for our event, we discussed how the culture of Silicon Valley is based on disruption, on taking risks, on sometimes unanticipated game changers. Silicon Valley is one of the few places in the world where trying and failing is celebrated; where somebody who doesn’t have any failures is considered to be not taking enough risks. We want to take this idea to its logical extreme, and see where we all go. So, Embracing Recklessness. It’s mysterious, it’s provocative, and it’s going to be quite a ride.

TEDxSunnyvaleLive – June 27th

TEDxSunnyvaleLive is a simulcast of one day of TEDGlobal from Edinburgh, Scotland.

We will show all four sessions from Wednesday of TEDGlobal. Due to the eight hour time difference between Edinburgh and Silicon Valley, we will time-shift the sessions here.  REGISTER HERE

We have a stress-free policy for our committee and our attendees. We want to keep the process of attending simple and casual. We know that most people have work commitments, and can’t dedicate a whole weekday, even for a major TED event. So we have an open-door plan.

We’ll start showing Session 4: Globality of TED Global promptly at noon on Wednesday, June 27th. Bring your lunch and join us in the Conference Room at TechShop in San Jose. There is free parking until the lot fills up. Come in when you can, leave when you have to, or stay for more.
