TEDx Columbus – A Moment in Time – 11-11-11

by Maureen McCabe on November 12, 2011

I went to TEDx Columbus,  A Moment in Time yesterday, November 11, 2011.  11-11-11

Trying to decide which of the TEDx Columbus talks was my favorite at lunch time was difficult. One attendee I had lunch with knew his favorite from the morning was the “Bug Guy.”   I tried to determine which of the 2011 TEDx Columbus talks was my favorite at lunch time.   Then we listened to a lot more talks after lunch.  One person I had lunch with, a Columbus librarian said this was his favorite from the morning, the recorded talk by Deb Roy of MIT, “the birth of a word.”

Would you want every minute of your life recorded?  I have to say, my first thought was “ick.”   I thought of  loss of privacy.

“How a child learns language” was the point of the long, long experiment.

I can not wait for the video’s of the day, TEDx Columbus,  A Moment in Time to be available.  Last year after my second TEDx Columbus I wanted to post all the TEDx Columbus 2010 videos but I am sure I did not.  I am not sure exactly why I did not. I posted some.   I know my favorite talk from 2010.  I posted my favorite TEDx Columbus 2010 talk.  I know my favorite talk from TEDx Columbus 2009.   It is posted here on ColumbusBestBlog.com

Before lunch on 11-11-11 Bugs, FreakJet.com, Gracehaven House, SOAP, human trafficking.

After lunch topics included but were not limited to:  bias, architecture, Columbus Idea Foundry, The Salty Caramels, STEM, “Gift of Life”, music, poetry. This Wordle is from the program information about the speakers.
