TEDxBoulder, containing me

I'm very pleased to announce that I'll be giving a presentation at TEDxBoulder on September 24 this year. TEDx events are independently organized from TED, but feature the same sorts of talks: inspiring, entertaining, and designed to help make the world a better place.

Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

My topic? Trying to make the world a better place by preventing an asteroid impact from making it a far, far worse place. The other talks look pretty interesting, including one from Kimbal Musk, Elon Musk's brother, and also from Jake Nickell, co-founder of the Threadless t-shirt company. I think this will be a very cool evening.
