An opportunity I’m pretty excited about. I’ve been invited to speak at TEDx Lansing. From the college’s announcement:

Many of you are familiar with TED talks and their mission to promote Ideas Worth Spreading with a focus on technology, entertainment and design. At TEDx Lansing local thought leaders are handpicked from the community and are given 20 minutes to share their idea, inspiration or research.
TEDxLansing offers 11 speakers who explore creativity in its myriad forms, including filmmaking, engineering, advocacy and zombies. The event will include performers as well as TED Talk videos designed to spark deep conversation and connection.
Here’s the lineup for this year, it’s a diverse cast of characters including LCC economics professor, Jim Luke talking about education and technology, an idea further influenced by his role with LCC’s Learn Forward campaign.
His presentation is called “Will Plato Hack the iPAD?”
If you’re going to watch the live streaming on Friday, I’m scheduled to speak at 10:43 am to 11:00.
