The second annual TEDxAlbany conference will take over The Linda in Albany beginning at 9am on Saturday, November 12. Priced at $75 ($37.50 for students), advance tix to the eight-hour event are now on sale.
Back in November, The Linda hosted the first local version of the forward-thinking TED conferences, in which visionaries and experts share forward-thinking concepts for our society. (Don’t know TED? Check it out.)
Albany’s day-long conference featured a wide range of speakers – including suburban sprawl expert James Howard Kunstler, intellectual property attorney Paul Rapp, Duplex Planet’s David Greenberger and ecologically-minded inventor Eben Bayer – and a full house of attendees from all walks of life.
