Ponderwell has been invited to present a talk at this year’s TEDxAsheville event on Sunday, November 13. Amie will be representing us up on stage, talking about the future of community media, why it matters and what we have to build to make it work. It should be a fantastic event; along with our talk there will be everything from talks on how we can use Skype to teach internationally to the experiences of Joyce Roush, the first American to donate a kidney to a total stranger. You can see the full lineup here.
If you’d like to come see it all live, we’d love to have you there. Tickets are $35 (or $100 if you want to go the VIP route), available here. The event, itself, will be at Diana Wortham Theatre here in Asheville, doors open at 1:00 pm.
If you can’t make it, don’t despair! Our talk, along with all the other presentations, will be filmed and put up on Youtube after the event, and we’ll be sure to include a link when we write up our experience.
So wish us luck…hopefully we’ll be able to convince a whole new crowd that community media really matters.
