I'm really looking forward to speaking at TEDxBerkeley, which will be held this coming Saturday, April 3, 2010 at Wheeler Auditorium at U.C. Berkeley.

I've just gotten confirmation that my 15-minute talk has been scheduled for 1:35 PM. The live webcast will start at 10:30 AM on Saturday, so if you aren't able to get to Berkeley for the event, you can still stream it online.

If you can't stream it live, you'll be able to see all of the talks online at a later time; professional video folks will be producing more polished versions of the the videos suitable for podcast.

Be sure to follow @TEDxB and #TEDxB to find out the latest news about TEDxBerkeley!

Congrats on that. Must be tough to narrow a subject to 15 minutes.

Cheers

I love TED and TEDx sounds like a fantastic initiative. And our Eric is part of it. That makes it even more fantastic!
I'll be setting the alarm clock!

....


and so did I!

and my young Peter (who you met at the dock when you were in Brisbane with Sea Shepherd) was impressed seeing you live on the web cast.
He participated in a 2000-strong youth leadership forum a couple of weeks ago, and likened the TEDx event to that.

I just put up an archive of my talk:

It is *so* refreshing to speak to a general audience. I sometimes forget that the vast majority of people don't care what f-stop I used -- they just get it.

The archive of the whole event are here:

... but it might be easier to browser clips, as the TEDx folks create them:

Just watched it Eric, great job. The photo of the Sperm Whale and the Squid was very cool.
