TEDxAlbany Conference Talks Now Available Online

February 15th, 2011, 1:00 pm by Greg

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.

Well, a number of the TEDxAlbany talks are finally being made available online. Not all of them yet, but most of them. For example, here’s Veggie Mobile Project Coordinator EJ Krans’ TEDxAlbany talk about mobile markets as vehicles for nutritional equality. (You may also recognize Kranz as a member of such Nippertown bands as Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned and We Are Jeneric):
