TEDxSaoPaulo - Denis Burgierman - 11/14/2009

Denis Russo Burgierman is a Journalist. He worked as editorial director at magazine Superinteressante nd was in charge of special projects at Editora Abril. Among the many controversial stories he pursued as a journalist are topics like homosexuality as a reflection of the wide sexual diversity in the animal world. In 2008, in an attempt to better understand the world, he went to California, where he attended one year of Knight Fellowship, one of the most sought-after journalism programs, at Stanford University. Having been used to the constraining deadlines and lack of resources and space in the Brazilian press, Burgierman also took the opportunity to enjoy the freedom he had at Stanford and experience, his adventurous side. During a break, he and his wife rode over 600 miles by bike to Los Angeles, discovering the pleasures of having a beer after having saved water for a whole day and cycling across plantations and beaches. Although he is a 'print man', he learned more from his Silicon Valley buddies than just the wish to rule the world. He is currently the Content Director at WebCitizen, a company whose proposal is to stimulate civic engagement and use digital culture to reduce the distance between citizens and their governments. =================================== 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.
