Still Flying High From My Experience at TED
It is difficult for me to describe, but I think my TED talk on Tuesday may have been one of the most profound experiences I’ve ever had. The audience – nearly 2,000 thinkers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs and leaders – create this strange, tangible energy, an intoxicating blend of intellect, emotional intelligence, and compassion. Sharing the Virtual Choir with them was great not just because they responded so enthusiastically to it, but because they seemed to immediately absorb it. I’ve never before felt anything like that while speaking publicly, this sense that my simple idea had been captured and was expanding and blossoming within the crowd. It felt viral, and thrilling.
My entire talk will go online in the first week of April to coincide with the premiere the Virtual Choir 2.0 video. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and check out everything that is going on at TED. Mind-blowing, life-changing stuff.
