For those of you who were hoping to join in on this year’s TEDxShanghai but for some reason couldn’t make the actual event, they’re taking a page out of last year’s playbook and streaming everything on Tudou.
TED conferences are “famed intellectual destinations for ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ through high quality influencer speech videos.” Basically, people in the know give lectures that might help you better understand some topic that coverges on the three topics of “technology, entertainment and design.”
As for the livestream, say the organizers:
This coming Sunday 9/5 from 10:00-18:00 Tudou will be live streaming TEDxShanghai event on http://www.tudou.com/home/tedxshanghai2010 The theme is “10,000 Hours” – referring to a rough number needed for someone to develop strongly one’s skill / profession. Very interesting mix of 10+ speakers. In the “Unleashing the Creativity of Young Chinese Animators” topic, Tudou will also be presenting a few brilliant animations and inviting two young animators joining us on site around 16:30 on the day.
So, like, check it out tomorrow.
