Once, three Jersey Shore boys journeyed to TEDActive 2010, overdosed on inspiration, and in our withdrawal, founded TEDxCapeMay in 2012. While at TEDActive, we drank deeply from the well, and our water jugs (no plastic please!) were always full. Jamie Oliver made us think twice about our food while Bill Gates made us rethink our fuel. Natalie Merchant gave new life to old poems while David Cameron envisioned a new life for his old country. What began in a Palm Springs desert, ended for us in the magical musical dimensions of â€œString Theory." TEDxCapeMay must surely come to our home shore, we vowed, and with the help of our sponsors, and many other local heroes, TEDxCapeMay 2012 was launched. To our national historic landmark Congress Hall came over 200 attendees to hear 12 creative presenters, each drawing from (and for) this recreational region. Now for TEDxCapeMay 2013.
