Sept. 27: TEDx Marin at the Kanbar Center

Posted By on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 at 3:01 PM

The future is here, and it involves speakers standing onstage with a headset microphone and a PowerPoint remote. TED conferences, in which interesting people talk about interesting things for a $6,000 price tag, are embraced by CEOs, venture capitalists and YouTube view counters. TEDx talks, on the other hand, are not sanctioned by TED and can be sponsored by just about anybody. (A TEDx talk in Corpus Christi last month, since gone viral for the wrong reasons, advocated the attainment of “swag.”) TEDx Marin features an impressive lineup, including neurobiologist Mohammed El Majdoubi, astronaut Ed Lu, author Lynne Twist, futurist Andrew Hessel and others. Be there on Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center. 200 N. San Pedro Drive, San Rafael. 5:30pm. $75. 415.444.8000.
