TEDxKC - Mike McCamon - Sh*t Happens... To Be A Global Problem

TEDxKC talk synopsis: As we rush through our busy lives, it is easy to take for granted the simple fact that we are all quite lucky to live in the developed world. No war, no terrorist plot, no dark alley, nor any oil spill affects more people each day than the lack of access to safe water and the dignity of a toilet. By choosing to better understand the most serious health threat of our time, we just might discover new ways to accelerate change both in ourselves and for others. Speaker: Mike McCamon is a serial evangelist for change. Having spent over 20 years in the technology sector at places like Apple and Intel, he helped to shape the market for the wireless standards we use each day in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Just under two years ago he embarked on his second career, this time for the non-profit, who's aim is no short of universal access to safe water and sanitation for every person the the planet. 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.)
