I’ll never be able to look at another conference the same way again… There has been an incredible amount of work done to make TEDGlobal happen and opperate smoothly. The logistics of getting 400 people back and forth between 10 hotels is one of the most impressive things I’ve seen.
As one African blogger told me, “Next time I’m at a conference, I’m going to be asking them why they only have one type of free beer available!?”
On top of how well it’s been run, the amazing internet connectivity speed, food and logistics, they spoiled us even more. All of the TED Fellowship attendees have been given a free Mac or PC, donated by Google and AMD, and a new satellite radio by Worldspace.
I’ll be picking a Mac. 🙂
