TEDxUNLV Flipping The Switch
On April 11, 2014 our team put on TEDxUNLV: Flipping the Switch with the phenomenal support and help from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. TEDxUNLV’s theme, Flipping The Switch, had both a complex vibe and a pleasing simplicity that was the center of our event on April 11, 2014.
Session 1: Ignite
To ignite means literally to “catch fire.” What does that mean to you? For TEDxUNLV, we believe that ideas catch fire within the human mind, forcing that idea to spread, rapidly, without the possibility of containment, to other minds. The initial spark which sets in motion the inventor’s first schematic, the storyteller’s first words, the scientist’s first question, should be carefully considered, shared, and discussed with others. It is here, in the mind, where the fire of ingenuity, of genius, of practicality, burns brightest. Here lays a burning passion to do something. What burns in your mind?
Session 2: Imagine
To illuminate means literally to “brighten with light.” From our simplest biology, life requires light to sustain itself. For TEDxUNLV, we believe life exists in ideas, and that ideas are worth illumination. Illumination sustains ideas in a way that allows them to be propagated long into the future, to be seen by many, to be understood by all. A good idea can continue in this way to change the world, and to ignite new sparks to keep the cycle of inspiration going, forever. What big idea will you keep from fading?
