Christina Crook discusses "Letting go of Technology: Pursuing a People Focused Future".
Christina Crook, off-line exploring, spent 31 days typewriting letters to a friend rather than turning to the internet for distraction, entertainment and affirmation. Her Letters from a Luddite project garnered national media attention and her book Digital Detox: Rethinking Our Lives Online, is forthcoming from New Society Publishers (Fall 2014.) Crook's poetry, essays and interviews on art, culture, technology and religion have appeared in UPPERCASE, CBC.ca, Vancouver Magazine, Today's Parent and the Literary Review of Canada.
TEDxTAW would like to thank our generous sponsors for all the support in making the inaugural event a huge success.

We could not have done it without your support.
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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
