TEDxWestlake - July 12, 2012

Our first TEDxWestlake explored the accelerating change in the world around us. This change is largely driven by the power of the digital infrastructure built over the last few decades. William Gibson has remarked: "The future is already here -- it's just unevenly distributed." While we can't predict the future, we tried to uncover and mine some of these veins.

We were lucky to have speakers from a wide array of disciplines, from kinetic art to philosophy to hybrid social ventures, to come share their stories with our audience of business students and innovators, and help us wonder about what might lie ahead.

whurley®. If you've ever met him then you know that he's brilliant. IBM named him a Master Inventor, he's got 11 patents to his name, and he's on the cutting edge of tech. He co-founded Chaotic Moon Studios and co-founded iPhoneDevCamp, iPadDevCamp, and BarCampAustin alike. The work he's doing with Predictive, Perceptive, and Pervasive Computing, and mobile technology is a constant push to do better than today. And yet he can do nothing without the developer community that he's a part of. Instigate. Collaborate. Innovate.™ "We're all in this together," he says. "Let's keep doing awesome things."

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
