Just in case you wondered what I’ve been up to since I came back from Texas: I’ve spent the last 3 weeks in Istanbul -Turkey- organizing TEDxSilkRoad (web, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest), the brainchild of Ferhan Cook. TEDxSilkRoad will take place on Wednesday April 11th at the beautiful Feriye Auditorium by the Bosphorus and will deal with the theme of “Borderless Creativity & Commerce”.
We’ll have local and international speakers (artists, professors, entrepreneurs and designers from companies like IDEO, MIT, American Museum of Natural History, Turkcell, Endeavor, Orange and others), a live music performance and a wearable tech Fashion Show by CuteCircuit.
Check out the full program here. The event will be live-streamed so keep an eye on the website for details.
