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.

interstitial (how many of these are we gonna have in Session 9?!) Kristin _____ (last name please?)

Kristin ____ from Palm Springs gave us a brief on the rules of improv.

Say yes. Never deny. Always go forward.

AND. Use AND. Follow the idea.

Eye contact. It’s engaging. Also, polite.

Also, it ain’t lying, it’s just choosing to know. You can act a little like you know (or don't know) certain things. Enough to make the scene work.

Stop judging, it’s sharing.

We can take these things into performance, but we can also take these things into life, and into the world after TED where we spread the ideas worth spreading...
