Hello Tuttle Folk
In May this year we were tipped off that the TEDx program was running,
and decided after a moment's thought to run TEDxTuttle. TED agreed (do
they know what they have let themselves in for ;-) ) and the rest, as
they say, is history.
Sun Startup Essentials have kindly sponsored the event and even given
us their smart Conference Centre to play with for an afternoon and
evening. Alan (@freecloud) Patrick "volunteered" his crew at Broadsight for
building the website, running the video systems, editing, processing
and helping organise the technical side of TEDx etc.
The TEDxTuttle website is at www.tedxtuttle.com
and there is also @tedxtuttle on Twitter to follow/comment on/argue
with/etc. Next step is for you, the lovely and awesome Tuttle Hivemind to decide what
we want to talk about.
We are planning to show 6 TED videos and have 3 speakers. The initial
plan is to talk about/show videos in 3 areas that we seem to be very
interested in at Tuttle:
- emerging technologies in our space (and cool gadgets etc)
- ecosystems (economic/ecological/social)
- social systems - media, digital anthropology etc
The rest of the time will be given over to what we like best... chatting and sipping coffee (and possibly something stronger later on)
The idea is that, when registering, all attendants note down areas they
are interested in covering. If the above themes don't suit, suggest
alternatives. We've already tapped a few people as potential speakers,
but feel free to suggest others.
But first, you gotta Register. When you Register you gotta tell us who you are, as well as:
(i) Something to talk to you about you in 140 characters - it will be printed on your sticker for the day
(ii) What sort of areas you are interested in covering, as noted above. No comment and we'll have to assume that what we want to see wins :)
(iii) We are in the process of lining up the speaker parts and videos,
but if you have anyone you'd especially like to see, shout it out loud
There are only 90 seats, so space is limited and will be allocated on a
first come - and most filled in form - basis. Tuttle members will get
priority but don't delay registering too late as we will have to make
cutoff calls by mid August at the latest.
After that we will post up the proposed program, speakers, videos etc.
This being Tuttle, people can comment on it but we will "go firm" by
Note that we are informing Tuttlers first, va this email, after that we will open it out further.
And let Alan know - alan.p...@broadsight.com
if you have any questions or problems with registration.
See you soon!
