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: Nigel Holmes

Given an introduction that included "if you want to know anything about anything, have him on speed dial"

He's talking about national debt.

He gives a scale of 10 trillion verses a billion. The width of the large screen versus the thickness of our name badges.

He ends with this idea:

Let's be optimistic. Let's think of the number of ideas we can have to solve all sorts of problems. If we can have that many dollars, you can have that many solutions. Or very easily more.
