TEDxWoodsHole simulcast @ MBL

When: Wed Feb 29th
11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Where: Speck Auditorium - MBL, MBL Street, Woods Hole

Coveted tickets to the annual TED Conference (Technology, Entertainment, Design) in Long Beach, CA sell out years ahead of time. But this year, members of the public can virtually “attend” part of the exciting TED Conference through the independently produced TEDxWoodsHoleLive event, which will live stream one day of the conference to Woods Hole.

The first half of the TED Conference will be streamed live over the Internet from 11:30 AM to 3:45 PM in the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL)’s Speck Auditorium, Rowe Laboratory, 10 MBL Street, Woods Hole. A break will occur from 1:15-2 PM.

That evening, from 5:15 to 9:45 PM, the second part of the TED program will be streamed live in a private Woods Hole residence. There will be a break from 7-8 PM, during which the Glenway Fripp jazz trio will perform. Directions to the evening session will be available in Speck Auditorium that day, or by calling 508-274-1354.
 
Attendees at TEDxWoodsHoleLive will view a stellar roster of TED2012 speakers, including entrepreneur T. Boone Pickens, climatologist James Hansen, and street artist JR, among many others. TED is acclaimed for presenting a unique blend of thought leaders and world-renowned performers. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
 
TEDxWoodsHoleLive is free and open to the public, and no reservations will be taken. Attendees may come and go as they wish. Limited daytime parking will be available in the grass parking lot on Bar Neck Road, Woods Hole, and metered parking is available on Water Street.  A limited amount of on-street parking will be available for the evening presentation.
