I have been asked to clarify an earlier blog.
As was made clear within that post, I was invited to participate in a TEDx event. TEDx events are locally and independently organized and do not represent TED. I regret any misunderstanding.
I have been warned that I will be contacted by TED with a request to cease and desist. I have been asked to change my use of TED to TEDxSantaCruz. I have done so.
