TEDxTableMountain 2013 was themed: Exploring The Edge.

Held at the African Dance Theatre on 16 November 2013, Speakers from an array of disciplines explored the concept of the edge.

Extreme sports, new technology, and future art fascinate us and expand our perception of what is considered possible. Exploration of minerals and fuel drive us to the Edge of where technology can take us on earth, from the bottom of the ocean, to the Arctic, to space mining.

Discovering "the other" as a revelatory process is fundamental to understanding "ourselves". When we define the "Edge", we are defining difference -- allowing ourselves to see each other in a comparative light. It is this ability to categorize, to separate ourselves along tribal and physical lines that has bounded us, divided us, and inked the history of the world with its permutations. When we find the "Edge" therefore, we find ourselves... our abilities, our affiliations, and our fears. It is also from the edge that we make our leaps into infinite possibilities, and break through boundaries and limitations. Here we find the opportunity to create new blends and commonality.
