Happy Holidays from TEDxTheHague!
You are cordially invited to our next salon! Our New Year's edition — themed Here's To The Crazy Ones — is curated by TEDxTheHague.
To kick off 2020, we're just gonna quote Apple's ad-copy from 20 years ago:
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:
