Looking into Tech Talks

The third annual TEDx Orlando was a sold out event last Saturday afternoon at the Garden Theater in Winter Garden.  TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design and participants were energized and inspired by a mixture of local and national speakers, interspersed with some of the best filmed TED Talks from 2012. Attendees also had the opportunity to participate in the Before I Die live interactive art project.
