Hey fans of TED Talks, here is a local event. For more information, visit http://tedxriverside.com.
The following is from http://www.pe.com/articles/riverside-751790-tedx-ted.html:
TEDx Riverside takes place Thursday at the Fox Performing Arts Center with a roster of high achievers that includes a Nobel laureate, a Pulitzer Prize winner and an NFL football player.
Many of the speakers are Inland residents or have Inland ties, including the three mentioned above.
Nobel-winning chemist Richard Shrock and Pulitzer-winning cartoonist Steve Breen went to UC Riverside, and former San Francisco 49ers defensive back Kermit Alexander lives here.
TEDx Riverside is an offshoot of TED, a nonprofit organization that holds conferences with short talks to encourage a convergence of technology, design and entertainment.
