Over in Canberra it is almost time for TEDx – the full programme is here Sessions are split into 4 sections, Observe, Consider, Decide and then Transform – nice 🙂

Great to see that Nobel prize winning wine maker Brian Schmidt is doing another talk.

I was lucky enough to hear him at (video from) TEDxSydney earlier this year. BTW his Nobel wasn’t for making wine although I’m sure he has a nice drop there. Anyone who makes @cosmicpinot  is a follow in my book.

The universe is getting faster ( not slowing down) and that suits me fine…

Other speakers that look more interesting than usual ( BTW all of them will be great)

Vic Peddemors Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor Vic Ped­de­mors leads the Shark Research Group for the New South Wales Depart­ment of Pri­mary Indus­tries, pro­vid­ing sci­en­tific lead­er­ship for the group’s research and advi­sory effort.

Stephen Walker’s unique expe­ri­ence in see­ing global poverty up close has moti­vated him to make a dif­fer­ence in a very dif­fer­ent way.

Upulie Divisek­era Mol­e­c­u­lar biol­o­gist and dinosaur freak

Great to see that Han­nah Cole­man Opti­mist against the odds (She doesn’t see her­self as a dis­abled per­son, but a reg­u­lar per­son with a disability) and Sally Richards Dis­abil­ity reform activist are both speaking today.

I was hoping to get across to Canberra myself but unfortunately couldn’t make it but I will be following along on twitter and on the live video stream at http://tedxcanberra.org/live/

Here are some key tweets live from the event as I hear them or make them






Note: This covers talks up till lunchtime over and out 🙂
