Bringing Nebraska to the World: Innovation on the Prairie was the theme for TEDxLincoln, an independently organized event designed to foster the sharing of ideas and connecting people took place on Thursday, November 10, 2011 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Tickets to the live event were SOLD OUT. Because we've had so much interest, we also hosted an offsite viewing at the Lincoln Community Foundation building at 215 Centennial Mall in Lincoln. We also heard from off site viewing groups at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Westpoint, Nebraska, and via our live blog from many folks across Nebraska, the United States and in several foreign countries.

The videos are now posted on TEDxTalks. Just click on the speakers name for the video. Also below is a link to an overview video. We express out gratitude to the sponsors including NET, Nelnet, Firespring, Cornerstone Printing, Nebraska Global, Nanonation, Floor 99, Stibal Marketing, The Lincoln Community Foundation, The Parthenon, The Grand Manse, Lincoln City Libraries, Allstate and TenDot Travel.
