TEDxAlbany is coming up

TEDxAlbany logoTEDxAlbany -- the local spinoff of the popular TED series -- is coming up next Thursday at The Egg (that's November 4).

The lineup of speakers looks interesting. A few of them:

  • Eben Bayer, co-founder of Green Island startup Ecovative Design
  • James Howard Kunstler, arch-nemisis of urban sprawl
  • Improv expert Kat Koppet
  • The Veggie Mobile's EJ Krans
  • UAlbany professor Edward Cupoli, who's part of the "nanoeconomics" constellation at the school

Jeff Gaines, a consultant from Cohoes, is the organizer of the event -- he'll be giving a talk on "Why is Everyone So Fat, Broke and Busy."

Tickets are $34.75 if you register before Sunday. After that, they're $39.99.

AOA is a media sponsor of TEDxAlbany. We figured it could be an interesting day -- both because of the speakers, but also because of the other people attending.
