TEDxDetroit 2011 is coming up on September 28th, which also happens to be my 30th birthday. Wooha! Tickets are only $26, make sure you register soon because they might fill up. It’s an awesome event.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Mary and I spoke at the last TEDxDetroit. A little blast from the past:
This year we’re excited for LOVELAND Technologies to be involved again. We’ll be in the TEDxDetroit Labs where people will be showing both art and technology from the city. And in LOVELAND style we’ll be straddling both.
On the tech side we’ll be showing our city mapping tools like Why Don’t We Own This? and more new stuff currently in the works.
On the art side our friends Ryan Ford and Brad Henderson will be joining us from New York. Ryan painted the crowdsourced “The Spirit of Detroit Vs The Blight” (painting below) and Brad is turning it into a playable game. Both the painting and the game will be there. Awesome stuff!
Also, on October 13th, I’ll be in Philadelphia to speak at TEDxSJU (Saint Joseph’s University). I haven’t been to Philadelphia in a long while. Looking forward to that!
