I finally have time to watch the TEDxNYED 2012 videos! I was too busy running around backstage (and all over the Museum of the Moving Image) on the day of the actual event to witness any of the live talks. Recently, our production team from True Life Media (@truelifemedia) uploaded the edited videos to a TEDxNYED YouTube playlist on the TEDxTalks channel. Now that the school year is winding down, I have available pockets of time to watch the talks. Baruch Hashem.
Looking back, April 28th was probably one of the most stressful days of my recent history. Still, even with all the anxiety (and figurative/literal blood, sweat, tears), it was gratifying when volunteers generously showed up on Friday and Saturday for much needed assistance, speakers enthusiastically thanked us, attendees waved aside the glitches, and when people shared positive and thoughtful tweets and blog posts.
These last few years, I’ve learned a lot about how to organize, delegate, and negotiate, and the process has changed me. I clearly have a ways to go, and I greatly appreciate everyone that has been a part of my development – most recently, this year’s batch of TEDxNYED co-organizers including Basil Kolani (@bkolani), Kiersten Jennings Chou (@choutofu), Tammy McKenna (@tmck76), and Matthew Moran (@matthewpmoran).
