“Life After Doomsday”
What comes after the end? What do you do when the sun comes up the day after it was all supposed to be over? Explore endings that failed to end, ponder new beginnings, and visit the times after “end times.”
There are over 1,200 TED talks up on TED.com, and over 17,000 talks from TEDx events. TEDxSunnyvale exists to bring some of the best of those talks together with passionate people to view, and to ignite discussion.
LIVE ATTENDEES, NOT LIVE SPEAKERS:
So while we will have live attendees, we will have no live speakers. We’ll watch together and talk about what we’ve seen. We’ll network and meet new people.
Our event is structured just like any other TEDx event – with a Theme, and Sessions of talks lasting roughly an hour and a half. But in our event all the talks will be watched on video, taken from both the TED and TEDx archives. This is an experiment – all the other TEDx events in the Bay Area focus mainly on live speakers. By taking this lower-key approach to a TEDx event, we are able to keep the costs very low, and we are able to hold multiple events in a year. We’re not trying to replace any of the other great Bay Area TEDx events; instead we add another dimension to TED in the Bay Area, and another way to participate and contribute to the greater TEDx and TED communities.
We have a stress-free policy for our committee and our attendees. We keep the process of attending simple and casual. We ask that you plan to be an active participant at the event.
