I've never been to TED, but I often watch the talks on ted.com and LOVE the energy of it! I had the joy of attending the 2010 TEDxPotomac, which was a blast. I've truly been honored to coach TED Fellows and support their magic in the world as a SupporTED Coach.
I guess you could call me a bit of a TED groupie, since I enjoy the videos so much and all the people I meet who are associated in any way with TED are super-cool, fascinating people doing amazing things in the world and I just want to be near them to soak up some of that inspiration!
