TEDx Salon: Matthew Inman of "The Oatmeal" and Sarah Donner "Reluctant Catlady"
Humor is the topic of this first salon of the season Oct. 4 at 6:30 p.m. featuring Matthew Inman, creator of the popular website theoatmeal.com, as speaker. Sarah Donner will perform her funny songs and talk about writing lyrics. Topical videos will also be shown, followed by a discussion, book- and CD-signing and networking.
Salon events are a great way to keep in touch with the local TEDx community between events. There are 4-5 salons each year and the best way to keep current is on the Facebook page.
The price of admission guarantees your seat at this event (limited to 100 attendees) and includes a copy of Matthew Inman's book "5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth" as well as a copy of Sarah Donner's CD "Typing is Dangerous." Refreshments with light appetizers and desserts will be served. The event is held in the first floor community room.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to "Ideas Worth Spreading." It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.
TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
At TEDxPrincetonLibrary, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
