We had a very successful time in Reno, NV on our first TEDx experience. Great team to work with, standing ovation after my address and we spent a lot of time in the community giving four more talks at the University of Nevada, addressing Microsoft’s licensing office and spending the day at Carson Montessori School.
Elizabeth Smart was one of the day’s speakers and it was interesting listening to her story of being kidnapped and surviving.
Two of my new favorite people, Racquel Abowd and her student, Ivan. Ivan plans to be Governor of NV. We will post his acceptance speech soon. We got to spend some time together at Rachquel’s school and have lunch at Adele’s. This is one of the best dining experiences one can have in Nevada. This is Raquel’s parent’s restaurant and do not miss the place if you are ever in Carson City.
One local newspaper covered our work with the students and wrote the following article.
