[edit] General information

The TED2010 conference will take place from the 9-13 of February in Long Beach.
There will be a live webcast, available for associate members, only.

The idea is to apply for a (1 year) membership and organize an event where we can watch the live webcast together.

The location for this is not fixed yet, my proposal would of course to do this at the hackerspace.

As the fee is quite high (995$/665€) we will have to gather enough people in order for the fee/person not to be too high.

Also included in the associate membership are, conference DVDs, TED Book Club and other stuff.

Anybody who is interested in this, please put your name on this site as soon as possible.

Bare in mind that as this is a live webcast, and the time difference is +9h (AFAIK), there will be night sessions ... check the program page for details.
