TEDxDelft will make sure to keep you young and inspired!
Just 1 days left till TedxDelft gets underway and I am so excited to be part of this very inspiring event! It will be a full day of BIG ideas, inspiration going on in little Delft.
So follow me Friday 5 October on twitter @susimenez as I live blog, tweet, film at the TEDxDelft.
This year TEDxDelft theme is ‘never grow up‘. Never stop asking questions, never stop wondering, always think of other ways to face challenges, always question why things are the way they are, keep wondering, keep on learning, always stay young, never stop dreaming, never stop doing, creativity by playing, work=play, gamification, living the dream, what do you mean, this cannot be done…inspired by Peter Pan
To give you a sneak peek of the line up, here are a few names I will be live blogging about.:
Pim van den Akker, Making everyday life extraordinary (presentation time: 12:42)
If you are into design, you don’t want to miss this presentation by the very talented Pim van den Akker. A Dutch designer who published his first book as his final thesis and then it went on to become an international best seller. Besides been recognized for his amazing floral design, he is also a furniture and lighting designer. I will be watching this presentation!
Arend Schwab – Why bicycles do not fall over (presentation time: 15:07)
Since I am not Dutch, but I do love riding my bicycle as my main mode of transportation in the city of Delft. I am sure there is more to discover about bicycle and why Dutch people can’t live without them.
Arend Schwab runs the bicycle mechanics lab and teaches mechanics at the Delft University of Technology. He has given academic talks related to his area of expertise in various universities all over the world. However, the concept of TED is relatively new to him.
Tom de Bruyne – I hate advertising and that’s why I’m in advertising (presentation time: 16:29)
Advertising is good and bad. How can I resist from such a title? Especially since I have worked in an advertising agency in Amsterdam and you can’t ignore that advertising is everywhere these days. Looking forward to sharing Toms presentation on advertising.
Tom de Bruyne, originally from Belgium, he studied clinical psychology, who ended up in the advertising world. He is passionate about making stuff with the ambition to excite people. Tom is founder and director at SUE Amsterdam, a start-up with the ambition to become an international creative agency for the digital era.
Spinvis – Cut up mini film stories disguised as pop songs (presentation time: 17:06)
Do not ask what the title means. I think we just have to listen to him and will figure it out by the end of his presentation. Erik de Jong, is better known as Spinvis, a one-man show using experimental and lo-fi (low fidelity) music. And has had great success in his home country, Holland… I don’t know if there will be much to blog about him during his presentation but I am sure it will be worth listening to while you are online.
Follow me on twitter @susimenez and to stay tuned with TEDxDelft.
Be inspired. Stay young with the live blog coverage of the TEDxDelft live, Friday 5 October.
