Hear of the origins of the 6 word memoir and the boardwalk talks with Smitty "the mayor of his section" and how a simple request lead to a movement of capturing people's stories in just 6 words. Larry delivers and encourages the use of 6 words to heal, build community, collaborate and connect. Example of 6....Small idea with big lasting effect!

Connecting people through 6 words? Unbelievable the power of this idea. LARRY SMITH is the founder and editor of SMITH Magazine, and its younger cousin, SMITH Teens. SMITH Magazine is best known for launching the Six-Word Memoir® project, which is a bestselling books series and a global phenomenon. Anticipating the microblogging explosion, SMITH originally launched the Six-Word Memoir project in November 2006 in partnership with Twitter with a simple online challenge asking: “Can you tell your life story in six words?” Now more then 1 million Six-Word Memoirs have been shared across SMITH Mag sites.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
