TEDxNewYork is held at GreyNY, 200 Fifth Avenue. We meet every week (mostly) on Fridays now and (mostly) from 1-2pm. We are open to the public. If you want to attend, send a note to admin@tedxnewyork.com (that's Don McKinney & Chel O'Reilly) with your vitals. Our biggest limitation is space so give us plenty of notice and we'll do our best to accommodate. Hope to see you at one of our events soon.

TEDxNewYork upcoming calendar

Hello All,

As you may have noticed, our weekly gatherings have been weathering some drastic time and date challenges. We've been working very hard with the volunteers and donated space to accommodate everything as best as we absolutely can. We're not perfect, but we have aspirations. We trust you understand there are many factors we have to deal with.

The good news is we have a calendar for the next 6 weeks! Whew! We're trying to secure Fridays from here until forever but when we can't, we play it old school and go back to Tuesday mornings.

**Tuesday at 10am September 21st
Friday at 1pm October 1st
Friday at 1pm October 8th
**Tuesday at 10am October 12th
Friday at 1pm October 22nd
Friday at 1pm October 29th

Thanks everyone!

TEDxScrambled (no TEDxNY this week 9/17)

Hello Friends,

Due to the facts that our awesome meeting space is graciously donated entirely for free we ran into a calendar kink and are unable to have TEDxNY this week. No is more sorry than I.

HOWEVER we are deep in conversations to hammer down future dates with nails, glue, screws and clamps just to be sure so that we will be golden for the near and distant future. Then, we'll be able to publish upcoming dates and the (RARE) changes in the future. That's better for everyone.

In the mean time, have a lovely week, enjoy each other's company and the weather and do something nice when no one's looking, because it's fun.

Be well, see you & see you soon.

TEDxNewYork 09/10/10 Robert Thurman (2009)

So, we had an interesting gathering this past week as a/v issues took the "technology" out of Technology Entertainment Design, so we were all forced to... talk to each other. O heavens forfend! No, wait, we do that every week...

So we talked before the talk instead of talking after the talk which was fun though the conversation structure was very different. Plus, we talked more after too.

I'm putting the request out here for anyone who had something they wanted to share from that (a website, a book, an idea) to post it in the comments here. There were a lot of ideas worth repeating.

Then, we watched this:

Bonus TED Activity on Thursday evening

TEDxNY is on for this coming week, Friday, 1-2pm.

ADDITIONALLY there's this, with our fellow TEDsters of NYC...


Announcing an unofficial and improvised TED-flavored meet-up on the new public Lincoln Center Lawn on Thursday, September 9. The meet-up starts about an hour before sunset and goes until they kick everybody off. Come join us for friends, fun and back-to-school sympathy. Please consider bringing at least two of the following: a little drink, a little food (maybe apples and honey for a sweet Rosh Hashanah?), a musical instrument, a spouse, a lover, a pal, a stranger, your kids, your folks, your posse, not your doggy (sorry!), a TED Talks fan, an activity, a talent and a beach towel and/or picnic blanket worth spreading.

This message is being sent out to New Yorker buddies old and new from among TED, TEDActive, TEDxEast, TEDxGotham, TEDxBrooklyn, TEDED, JED and anyone else we can think of. If you feel like we've missed somebody, absolutely pass it along. TED virgins and walk-ins encouraged. Please feel free to tweet this notice, post it, blog it or link to it here. No RSVP, no questions, no nuthin'--just come if you can, when you can. If it rains...that SUCKS.

--Amy (TED Prize Director), Kelly & Rives (TEDActive co-hosts)
