Transcript

  • 1. Nearly 1,000 people gathered at Chicago’s Oriental Theater for TEDxMidwest in October, 2011.
    Here’s a taste of what the 25 amazing speakers served up…
  • 2. The way we’re working isn’t working.
    -- Tony Schwartz
  • 3. Happiness and unhappiness are not opposite ends of a continuum – they’re parallel systems.
    -- Nancy Etcoff
  • 4. Data always has a story to tell.
    -- Jason Salavon
  • 5. The end of the world is a little like death – we don’t prepare for it even though we know it’s inevitable.
    -- John Hodgman
  • 6. Penguins don’t know they’re cute; leopard seals don’t know they’re ugly. That’s just what happens – animals eat animals.
    -- Paul Nicklen
  • 7. I’m working how to make invention a legitimate career.
    -- Pablos Holman
  • 8. We need a future that’s about the future.
    -- Edie Wiener
  • 9. It’s embarrassing to say we were in prison -- but looking past that, it’s a blessing to be a voice for the communities we represent.
    -- The Interrupters
  • 10. Do goodery (I also call it “poverty porn”) is a broken model in the Internet age.
    -- Alexis Ohanian
  • 11. America is a great place because we can determine our own future.
    -- Dean Kamen
