Yesterday I had the distinct opportunity and pleasure to attend TEDxZumbroRiver. This is the second year running of the Rochester-based TEDx event, with the goal to "share ideas, network, and catalyze innovation in the Rochester-area."
TED- or Technology, Entertainment, and Design- is a nonprofit that spreads innovative, powerful ideas in the form of TED talks. These talks are eighteen minutes or less and cover a range of global issues and "ideas worth spreading." TEDx events are locally organized, independent TED events, bringing TED-like talks into the community. This year, TEDxZumbroRiver showcased ten different speakers from Rochester and around the United States, all focused on the theme "What's Possible."
TEDxZumbroRiver was a night of inspiration and emotion, encouraging listeners to push boundaries, both real and perceived, to truly live life and recognize our own full potential.
Here are some photos celebrating the evening event. Check back for the full story next week.
