WT? at TED

I gave a talk this week at TEDActive in Palm Springs about “THE POWER OF WHY?” and how we and the folks at Why Tuesday? San Francisco use the simple question as we push to affect change in our voting system. That’s a picture of my talk above.

If you were at TEDActive and are interested in seeing more of the video I previewed during my talk, you can find it here. For more about Why Tuesday? click here. And stay tuned, I hope I’ll have my entire talk to post here soon.
