With a completely fresh take on how to curb growing traffic problems, industrial designers and insatiable problem solvers, Michael McDaniel + Jared Ficklin thoughtfully propose the use of urban cable (like the gondolas you see in the mountains) as an effective, efficient part of a multi-prong mass transit solution.

They use Austin to demonstrate how this elegantly simply idea can address the most common concerns with implementing mass transit -- among both riders and civic leaders -- and how it has the potential to connect a city in surprising ways. Follow @WireAustin to learn more.

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)
