TEDxUofL focuses on interconnectedness


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Organizers of a Feb. 28 event at the University of Louisville’s Belknap Campus hope the public will plug into and transmit new ideas about interconnectedness.

    The free, public TEDxUofL 2015: Interconnected conference aims to dispel “the idea that we all live in a vacuum,” said conference director and UofL graduate student Stacey Reason.

    The 9 a.m.–noon event will feature discussions about sustainability, discovery and dynamism through “TED-style” brief, powerful talks; the format is modeled on conferences that began in 1984 with one that tied in technology, entertainment and design (TED).
