For those of you who haven’t heard of the amazing conference TED (which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design), it’s a worldwide phenomenon which goes by the mantra ideas worth spreading. TED licenses out its brand in a franchisee-like manner to events all over the world which carry the name TEDx (the x stands for an independently organised TED event).
This Saturday, 20th November 2010, I will be speaking at TEDxMelbourne which will be held at the State Library of Victoria. I’m super-excited to be part of such an amazing event and community!

This TEDxMelbourne event will follow the theme Community & Youth, which makes it perfect for me to speak about the community non-profit organisation I volunteer for called, Step Back Think. Step Back Think aims to put an end to street violence, particularly alcohol-fuelled violence – and it’s something I’m very passionate about.
Unfortunately (due to popular demand), tickets for this TEDxMelbourne event sold out in just a few days but I’d love you to watch me speak via the livestream (register here). Otherwise, here are a few other ways to be a part of the day.
