TEDxPhoenix Announces Speakers and Ticket Details

Technology, entertainment, and design -- if we told you those three words reflect the blueprint of the future, you'd think we're crazy. But technology, entertainment, and design make up the acronym TED, and as you Internet savvy folks already know, TED Talks are the future.
In 2009, TED created TEDx, a program designed to bring the TED experience to cities around the world combining pre-recorded TED Talks, and live presenters discussing varying issues prevalent in today's society, but having fun in the process (read Nardwuar the Human Serviette at TEDxVancouver).

Chelpka catapulted to YouTube fame after his father posted a video of the 3-year old reciting the poetry of Bill Collins ... from memory.
We struggle remembering our favorite Dr. Seuss stories, let alone the work of a one-time United States Poet Laureate.
Well played, Chelpka.
