One week on… http://tedxexeter.com/2014/04/04/one-week-on/ http://tedxexeter.com/2014/04/04/one-week-on/#comments Fri, 04 Apr 2014 09:00:05 +0000 Storyteller http://tedxexeter.com/?p=4748 This morning I’m very excited because I’m going to see the videos for the first time. Andy has already been through the live edits. Now it’s our chance to make sure they are as good as they can possibly be.

I’ve been through the live blog and tried to get rid of some of the infelicities. Any typos, misrepresentations, etc etc are still all mine. The website links put it all in chronological order now, and I’ve added a couple of fun addenda to Ann’s and Joel’s posts.

Last night, I went to the opera (my life isn’t always this interesting) to see Bizet’s “Doctor Miracle”. Completely new to me. It struck me that Doctor Miracle would be a good name for a super hero. After hearing Allyson’s talk, goodness knows we need one to help save the NHS.

And finally, I’m sure you were wondering who moved all that cheese left over from lunch. Well, the lovely Sara had the brilliant idea of taking it to Gabriel House of the Shilhay community, who were over the (green cheese) moon.

Blog blog! http://tedxexeter.com/2014/03/31/blog-blog/ http://tedxexeter.com/2014/03/31/blog-blog/#comments Mon, 31 Mar 2014 19:56:54 +0000 Storyteller http://tedxexeter.com/?p=4721 Again, in 2012 and 2013, I collated links to blog posts and photos. So as I’ve created a rod to beat my own back, here we are again. Please let us know of any more out there, and watch this space…

At the frontier

will789gb questioned Simon Peyton Jones’ emphasis on computer science rather than technology.

verbal onslaughts was at the event with her two flatmates and a friend all the way from Prague. She picked out some highlights, pretty much most of the day!

Speaker Claire Belcher hopes that “if just one person in that audience, which included several school groups is able to say ‘wow I never knew that about wildfires’ and it sparks one persons interest and perhaps another via the internet then that’s how ideas start spreading.”

Picture this

“Here comes @TEDxExeter”, a Vine behind the scenes from former speaker turned team member Andy Robertson.
