TEDxAlbany 2015 speakers lineup

Overit 1.jpgThe lineup is out for this year's TEDxAlbany, which is December 3 at Overit in Albany.

This topics for this year's talks range from empathy, to exotic physics, to the experience of transitioning gender, to farms. The full lineup is after the jump.

TEDxAlbany is the locally-organized version of the popular TED talks series. Overit hosts the event at a studio in its converted church building on New Scotland Ave.

Tickets are now available. They're $90 and include breakfast and lunch. There's limited number, and the event has filled up quickly the last few years.

Comments

I see you guys are celebrating #fbf with this article's headline ;)

Despite the fact that I'm perpetually shocked that it isn't still 2008, I think you meant to write 2015, not 2014 up there.

You mean 2015, correct?

Erf. It's fixed now. Thank you everyone.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
