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).

Resources from @EdCampNYC at @The_School today

The Organizers

So, EdCampNYC happened. Yes, we will organize another. No, we will not start offering tickets months in advance. I’m grateful we had a more intimate crowd than I expected, but our costs would have been greatly lessened had all of the anticipated attendees arrived. The session board filled up seriously fast, and it was great to see all the tweets and resources shared throughout the day.

Had I not been an organizer, I would have led a session on Google Apps, integrated projects, paperless science journals, social networking in the classroom, professional development, media tools, offered a tour of the school and discussed the intentions of The School at Columbia University. Additionally, I would have been able to remain in a session for more than a few minutes and benefited from the conversations happening on three different floors. For next year, I am hoping to recruit some students to help at registration, act as hall monitors and tech support, and maybe lead a session on some of their projects.

A million thanks to our sponsors and everyone who organized, participated, and led sessions!
