I've heard good things about the group but that is all I know.
My first TED event was the Santa Monica chapter on meetup. I went to a TED SM meetup not knowing anything about TED. At another meetup event I listened to Lior Zoref from Israel talk about his being a Crowdsourcing advocate. He also talked about how a school child wanted to become a scientist and told a teacher. She told him he had no business having a goal to be a scientist. Not deterred he years later wrote a paper about physics and was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics with another physics expert. After Lior Zoref finished talking I had to tell him how a teacher told me I cannot build an airplane. And how with students I may get to participate in the design and construction of several airplanes. We may build a 2-seat design inspired by the Cassett racer I sought partners to build in high school. I hope we get a sponsor to build a 300 mph or better cruise speed design. But best of all after hearing Lior Zoref talk about talking at TED I want to talk at TED also.
I'm near launch of a network between universities to list projects so engineering, design & architecture students form teams to design. PROJECTS: College students print engine parts on 3D printers. Can students design car bodies to fit a stock chassis? Can students design homes, cars, airplanes? High school kids assemble kits for cars, airplanes after classes only if they maintain grades & don't skip classes to keep kids attending school. Can replicas of full size cars, airplanes for museums inspire more kids to seek math skills/careers? A interview of a website/blog owner earning $42K/mo made me I believe anyone can launch sites to earn $4K to $5K/month after 24-48 months if they are passionate about site/blog topic they promote. If 2, 3 or more people cover a larger topic or hire writers even more income can be possible from sponsors placing paid ads. If site owners network to find out what sells ad space or doesn't sell ad space more ads can be sold on sites others own.
Hello, I plan to launch two information websites in 2013 and may open 2 more in 2014.
