You’ve got 18 seconds to shine at TEDxAustin

Ever dreamed about giving a TEDxAustin speech?
This year, you’ve got a chance. Stacy Weitzner, one of the TedXAustin organizers, has dreamed up a way to let more people participate by presenting their idea in an 18-second post to Youtube.
TEDxAustin, an invitation-only event, which sells out every year, is being held at the Austin Music Hall on February 11th.
I’ve embedded their video below for the instructions. But it sounds easy.
This year’s TEDxAustin’s focus is titled “Beyond Measure” to ponder “the implications of an ever-accelerating pace of innovation in technology, information and the way we live our lives.”

“Think about what BEYOND MEASURE means to you, and then use your phone, camera or web-cam to record an 18-second TED talk and post your video to youtube. VERY IMPORTANT: make sure to tag or title your video with the keyword tedxaustin18, and we’ll make sure to feature it either on our website or at our live event!”

TEDxSanAntonio to feature tech entrepreneur G.P. Singh

The organizers of TedxSanAntonio selected Gurvinder Pal “G.P.” Singh, founder of San Antonio-based Karta Technologies, as one of its speakers for next weekend’s event.
Singh now serves as CEO of Paras Capital Management. He will speak on his “Entrepreneurial Journey: From Expert Technologist to Servant Leader.”
Singh started Karta Technologies in his garage and sold it in 2007 to NCI, Inc., a government contractor in the information technology industry, for nearly $65 million.
Karta, a privately-held company, worked as a military and government contractor as well as for commercial customers. At the time of the sale, Karta had more than 400 employees and offices in 25 locations.
The second TEDxSanAntonio will be held at Trinity University’s Stieren Theatre on Oct. 15. Last year, about 250 people attended the inaugural TEDxSanAntonio event. TEDx is affiliated with the TED Conference held in Long Beach, Calif. every year. But the x stands for independently organized.

Last year’s event featured a speech by Rackspace Chairman Graham Weston on treating employees well.
“What we all want is to be valued members of a winning team on an inspiring mission,” Weston said.
