Postcards from the future

Designing technology has always been magic, but now is a special time, as the internet allows for large scale public participation and nearly instantaneous feedback – what Scott Klemmer calls, Design at Large. Ideas that don’t work the first time around can often times be modified or redesigned quickly, and a new version released for another round of feedback.

Where do you go for transformation?

As much as we enjoy those things which inspire us, inspiration is not enough. Navrina proposes that what we truly need are moments of transformation – moments when we see our life clearly, when we envision the person we want to be, and understand the choice that is in front of us: to stay the same, or to take a risk, and transform into a better version of ourself.

What Attendees Say About Us

It was an amazing and inspiration day. The entertainment components especially meant a great day to me. I’ve been telling everyone that they need to invest in themselves and go next year.

I think the exploration and presentment of new and innovative ideas fosters discussion, opens perspective, and creates an opportunity for meaningful dialog. Well structured, well presented, and thoroughly entertaining, I would confidently encourage friends and colleagues to attend.

Eye opening, Mind refreshing, opportunity driven for positive thinking and meaningful action for Change in the World, this being on a personal level and a translation in a context of wider impact.

TEDxSanDiego is a catalyst for spreading ideas that change our world
