Day 27

elle s'appelle TED

Do you guys watch TED Talks? I feel like a certain online hub of people are hoarding them and many are unaware of their existence. And whenever I introduce a new comer their reaction is always “why didn’t i know?! etc.” So if you don’t know get to know. These talks are basically an aggregation of the jazziest movers and shakers right now who talk about their wild and wonderful creations and ideas.

TED has a bunch of sort of franchised versions of the talks in cities all over the world called TEDx and Dubai contacted Sheena almost a year ago to be a speaker. So she jetted over there and gave 18 minutes of her all. Why 18 minutes? Talk selector Chris Anderson says “By forcing speakers who are used to going on for 45 minutes to bring it down to 18, you get them to really think about what they want to say.”

The point I’m trying to reach is ~ it’s awesome, watch it! xx.wasabipear

***Today’s outfit: LBD worn over cigarette pants. Smoking cardigan ala Hef with love from eBay Green. Suspenders from somewhere unknown. Keds!
