TEDxDubai 2010| Mo Abedin | New Beginnings

The trials, tribulations, and journey of being a young entrepreneur jumping in with both feet in pursuit of a dream. Mohammed is half Emarati and half Thai, born and raised in Bangkok. Since he was little, he had been greatly impacted by the Far East and developed a great appreciation for Asia's colorful history and culture -- leading to a growing curiosity in the creative arts. Growing up, his first influences were toys, cartoons, video games and comic books like any other child, but the hunger to create came shortly after. He then started drawing, and in an attempt to improve his talent, he started looking towards Comic Artists such as Joe Madureira and Humberto Ramos during his teens for inspiration and later ventured into creating comics and designer toys. Twitter :@moabedin ------------------- 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]
