TEDxSMU 2010


TEDxSMU 2010 was held on October 16th at Dallas’ Dee & Charles Wyly Theatre, and as the culmination of the first ever Dallas Idea Week. Check out the pictures on Flickr!

The topic of this year’s TEDxSMU was serious stuff. We talked about human survival. The range of perspectives on the theme was vast, but at the heart of all the talks was a common thread: how are we going to make it as a global community?

The speaker line up for TEDxSMU 2010 was out of this world. Check out the incredible folks who joined us on stage at TEDxSMU.
