By Jim McCarthy 0 comments

I’m cribbing Chris Anderson a little bit here, and this could also apply to any TEDx or TED itself.  Still, here we go: 1.  Sit in a different seat for every session.  Don’t get territorial.  That’s boring.  It’s amazing how much a different literal perspective can change your mental perspective. 2.  Sit with different people [...]
