TEDxSydney - Julian Morrow - Wraps Up the Day in the Time Honoured TED Way

Julian Morrow is a co-founder of The Chaser, a satirical media empire which rivals Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation in all fields except power, influence, popularity and profitability. He now works as part of the Chaser creative team and, for his sins, is its Managing Director, as well as working independently in the media. Staying true to the Chaser corporate motto, "Striving for mediocrity in a world of excellence", Julian has worked with the Chaser team on all its media projects, including the internationally popular Olympics parody site, a decade's worth of Chaser Annuals, and various radio and stage shows. Due mainly to others' unavailability, Julian was invited to give the 2009 Andrew Olle Media Lecture. The lecture was described as "excellent" by his mother. Julian hopes one day to leave the media to pursue his dream of becoming a lawyer again. With his 15 minutes, Julian provides TEDxSydney with the traditional TED comedic wrap ... all prepared by Julian on the day. ------------------- TEDxSydney 2010 was organised by General Thinking and took place on Saturday 22 May 2010 at CarriageWorks. Almost 2,000 people enjoyed the day live, over 700 in the theatre and the rest via big screen simulcast in The Forum. Thousands more watched the lives webstream. It was a grand day. About TEDx, x = independently organised event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised 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-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
