TEDxMonterey - Whitney Anderson - What Used to Be...

Some of my earliest memories involve the ocean. Once when I was six or seven I watched a documentary on the giant squid. It said something to the effect that no one had ever seen one alive, but they knew that they existed because their remains had been found in the bellies of Sperm Whales. I decided that I was going to be the first person to see one alive. So on a family camping trip in Baja California, I searched every tide pool, inlet, and beach in the area and was upset to find not much more than anemones and sea crabs. My passion for the ocean has continued to intensify throughout my life and today I am a scuba dive master studying international marine policy at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
