Upcoming June 4: TEDxSF - ALIVE! Maximum Living...


TEDxSF is coming up this Saturday at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts - Noon to 6pm. It's my favorite local event. Above is video from the one in November, with Jaron Lanier playing one of the strangest instruments I've ever seen, a khene.

The theme for the next TEDxSF is "ALIVE! Maximum Living as a Human."

ALIVE! will examine the human lifecycle from many angles: vibrant aging, meaning, mission, family, identity, sexuality, living in community, parenting, coming of age, childhood, birth and conception.
