My notebook is packed. And my imagination…well, that’s always ready to go with me at a moment’s notice. This afternoon, I leave for Long Beach, California, where I’ll be speaking at the 2012 TED Conference, “Full Spectrum.”
My talk on imagination and world building will be part of Friday’s Session 11, called “The Classroom,” along with Bill Nye the Science Guy, New Hampshire Teacher of the Year Angie Miller, and Yale materials engineer Anissa Ramirez, among others. You can see the full list of TED2012 speakers here. I’ll be signing EYE OF THE STORM (which comes out on Tuesday!) at the official TED bookstore after my Friday morning talk.
As always, the talks will be posted online, for free, in the weeks following the conference. TED has also arranged for a free live stream of Wednesday night’s Session 7 online. If you’re a TED Talk enthusiast like I am and want to experience part of the conference live, just check out the instructions and you can join us on Wednesday.
I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing, amazing week. I’ll be tweeting photos when I can and will try to blog from Long Beach at least once, but mostly I’ll be soaking in ideas. See you when I get back!
