TEDxSanDiego - Larry Burns - The Power of "And"

Lawrence Burns compares today's China to the United States of the 1950s, when progress was spelled with a capital "P" and anything was possible. There was a sense of optimism that we have lost, but China is now experiencing. Expo 2010 Shanghai had over 73 million visitors in 184 days. For many Chinese, it was their first trip outside their village or city. At the Expo, they saw the brightest and best inventions including General Motors' new ENV technology. To achieve something completely new, Burns encourages us to use generational learning, to rethink the DNA and think like a designer.About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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.)
