I'm in New York City for the TEDxNYED conference which is focused on how new media and technology are shaping the future of education. I can't say enough about the speaker line-up. Many are people whose work and ideas I'm familiar with (Lawrence Lessig, Michael Wesch, George Siemens, David Wiley, & more), as well as a couple people I've communicated with at least minimally through Twitter and their blogs (Dan Meyer & Chris Lehmann).
I'm super-excited to hear from these people in person and look forward to the conversations, thinking, and challenges that I'm sure will spring from this experience. There's a live stream of the event on the official website (http://www.tedxnyed.com), so check it out between 10am - 6 pm on Saturday, March 6.
