TedIndia, Nov 6, Day 3


Published on

There was no live stream for Day 3 at TEDIndia. I took the major tweets from the #TEDIndia feed and tried to capture what speakers said. This of course does not substitute the live videos TED will post in the future but it definitely makes me look forward to those videos! Thanks to all the people tweeting on Day 2 of the TEDIndia Conference. This isn't a perfect capture and I am still working on making these slides more visually appealing. You can check out my blog at healthview.posterous.com if interesed in the write-up of some of the other TEDIndia sessions.
