It’s show time!

I will tell you more about the schedule later on, but first – a warning, a confession.
Children have an attribute which disappears with time. It’s called excitement.
Once, while walking down the street with our daughter Maya (she was 3 years old at the time), an elderly man passed by, as he approached us she yelled out “Daddy, look, it’s a bald man!”
As adults, our level of excitement is just not the same. However, I am still a child at heart when it comes to “excitement”. My daily conversations are filled with exciting descriptive words, such as wow, amazing, and awesome. That’s me, that is the way I am. I am like a little kid in a candy store!
Why am I telling you this? Why am I warning you? Let’s just say, that I will probably say “Wow” more than a few times next week while I am at TED.
For those of you who are sensitive to over excitement, I suggest that you filter me out of your stream next week.
Here is my schedule for next week:
I fly to the USA on Friday night.
I’ll be spending a short, but yes exciting, weekend in Manhattan, and then I’ll be traveling to Long Beach, California.
Monday, February 27th, is the day before the TED talks start. On Monday I will have my first rehearsal; I will be meeting with all the speakers and will participate in a few master workshops.
On Tuesday, February 28th, TED begins.
My TED talk is on Wednesday February 29th, at about 14:30 PST.
Following are two days of TED talks filled with lectures and activities ending on March 2nd.
I promise to update my status as much as possible and keep you all in the loop, but I apologize in advance, I probably will not have time to respond due to the jam packed event schedule.
Many have asked me where they can watch my TED Talk live. Unfortunately the TED talks will not be available live for free. There is a Pay per View option via TED Live but prices are not cheap.
Thank you and TED … here I come!
