TEDxSMU stirs curiosity in Dallas, Nov. 11-12

The folks behind TEDxSMU are bringing a jam-packed weekend of lively discussions, speakers and bright ideas to Dallas on November 11 and 12 at The Bomb Factory. Local and national speakers, covering topics such as entrepreneurship, technology, medicine and more, hone in on TED’s mission of “ideas worth spreading.” As a fan of TED Talks, I’m excited to experience this event right in my own backyard.
