    Apr 6 2013: The important thing is that TED has failed to stop this event from taking place. So we'll get to see if the world goes to hell-in-a-hand basket as predicted by some. I'm guessing things will go on, as per usual, except that some of us will have had the pleasure of seeing awesome talks from people like Larry Dossey and Russell Targ.

    Nothing is more fun that going to a prohibited event!

    The live stream of the exTED event will be shown here on April 14, 12:30 PM EDT:

        Apr 6 2013: So pulling support from an event shortly before it takes place was TED's idea of helping?
      • Apr 6 2013: Some might argue that by deliberately waiting until almost the last minute to pull the plug TED was indeed trying to prevent the event from taking place. Who knows? Not you.
        • Apr 6 2013: Oh, yeah. I forgot to jump to that conclusion.
    • Apr 7 2013: Reasonable enough conclusion it seems, given TED's new ideological commitments.
