Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, Gardner ran CBC.CA, the website for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, one of Canada's most prominent and best-loved cultural institutions. ------------------- The theme for TEDxDubai 2010 is REBOOT. But what does it mean? For the technology addicts, it is a way to prompt a fresh start. Sometimes there is nothing else one can do other than start again. REBOOT is sometimes forced upon us, so we should celebrate and share the events that prompt a fresh start, the failures that inspire new ventures and the ideas worth spreading from that journey. When we Reboot we embrace failure and celebrate it as an opportunity to Re-think, Re-start. ------------------------------------------------------------------ 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) Our event is call TEDxDubai, where x=independently organized TED event. ------------------------------------------------------------------ TEDxDubai is produced by Zer0 | [email protected]
