The lineup is out for this year's TEDxAlbany, which is December 1 at Overit in Albany.
This topics for this year's talks range from social justice, to erotic intelligence, to historic buildings, to doing things you hate, to artificial intelligence. The lineup of speakers posted as of today 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 $75 and include breakfast and lunch. There's a limited number, and the event has filled up quickly the last few years.
