My TED story

On September 24, 2007, Netflix shipped the documentary "TED: The Future We Will Create" to my home. Little did I know then that my life would be forever changed and enhanced by TED and the TED community. The last five years have been filled with exciting conferences, meeting amazing people from all over the world, receiving awesome books in the mail, watching TONS of TEDTalks, being a part of something that is changing the world for the better and organizing TEDxChemungRiver. I cannot imagine my world without TED. I am so thankful...

John Bohannon: Dance vs. powerpoint, a modest proposal
Very creative! I am so tired of the overuse and poor use of PowerPoint. I checked out the website he mentioned (http://gonzolabs.org/dance). It’s a pretty cool concept. My friend at work said, “Ha. It’s nerds gone wild!” True, but I love our nerds. And if this is a way we can help them express what they are thinking so more of us can understand, then I’m totally for it.
