How to create a crowdsourced presentation

Just two more weeks to go.
I’m so excited.
The TED talk is ready and I already done a few dozen rehearsals.
The process of creating my talk was fascinating and surprising.
It started with thinking about the structure of the talk, looking for crowd wisdom inspiring stories , receiving creative ideas to convey the message (like the ox, quotations and more), linguistic proof using Wikipedia, editing a video with the crowd, doing the dress rehearsal and more.
The 16 year old Or Sagy has created a diagram to present all the stages in the process by weeks. Here is the big picture:

Indeed it is a complex task which required a substantial amount of time.
But, during the process I have met fascinating people, I received amazing ideas and according to your feedbacks, the presentation (touch wood) is excellent. Thank you!
In two weeks I’m going to make my dream come true.
And then, when I will try to be the best I can be, toward the end of the presentation, I will say this sentence which concludes the journey I’m going through in the best way:
“Dreams are what guides us and what helps us to become the best thing that we could be. Dreams are what make us who we are” – Sir. Ken Robinson.
