An Evening of TED Talks and Lively Discussion
TEDxGreatFallsLibrary continues on Tuesday June 16, 7:00 pm with The Internet in Our Lives. This program is free and open to the public.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference
bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxGreatFallsLibrary is an independently organized event licensed by TED. This event continues on the third Tuesday of each month. Each month we will show several TED Talks videos featuring experts in their fields sharing cutting edge ideas, innovation, and progressive ways of applying expertise for the betterment of society. A lively discussion will follow.
June’s selections for The Internet in Our Lives are:
Connected, but alone? by Sherry Turkel
The price of shame by Monica Lewinsky
Don’t like clickbait? Don’t click by Sally Kohn
Let’s try emotional correctness by Sally Kohn
The Web as random acts of kindness by Jonathan Zittrain
