When I got to know about TedxCanberra several months ago when I will still back in Malaysia, I was elated! :) I was going to pursue my degree in Canberra this year and it was an opportunity not to be missed. I think my life studying in University of Canberra and being in Canberra just got better. :D
This year, it is held in the National Library, and there would be TedxCanberra 2011! (Yay!) I've always been watching Ted talks in ted.com and everytime I watches them, I feel that I could do something as well.
The briefing was a day before the awesome day, and boy, was I excited. The empty hall and the preparations made me wonder what new things would I learn the next day, as a crew and as a learner. I was really impressed on how a small team of people pulling such a meaningful event together.
That's Steve (@trib), the main person that brought Ted to Canberra, who is also the host for the day! :)
Few things that I learned from the speakers that really inspired me:
Instead say refer it to 'taking one's life', or 'the act of suicide'. Suicide is not a sin, it is a problem that should eradicated.
All the awesome speakers for that day
This is really different back home, where a tiniest mistake can result in instant dissatisfaction, which is something we need to change.
Follow the speakers for TedxCanberra 2010 here, and the crew here. :)
