Watch the live stream of TEDxManchester2

Occupy Everything

As previously mentioned… I’m thrilled to be talking at TedXManchester after masterminding the very first one in BBC Manchester over 2 years ago. Unfortunately the event sold out months ago and the idea of opening up more space so people could watch, wasn’t possible.

However, I’m happy to say there will be a live web stream on the day and you can watch it from the comfort of your own machine.

Hello Manchester TEDsters,
We’re happy to announce the detais of the webcast for TEDxManchester. The webcast starts at 1pm this Monday, 13 Feb.
You will find it at..
Our event hash tag is #TEDxMCR for all your social chatter.

What exactly I’ll be talking about is still a secret but if you look at the last two times I’ve spoken this month it might help.

  1. ????
  2. Perceptive Media
  3. Who pays on the first date?
I can tell you its going to be highly personal and I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this one. You won’t want to miss it as its going to have people talking for a long time afterwards hopefully. The slide above is from the presentation by the way…

I’m presenting in the 2nd half of TedXManchester after 1530 with,

  • David Erasmus
  • Tara Shears
  • Brendan Dawes

While at 1300,

  • Mary Anne-Hobbs
  • Tom Bloxham
  • Dan O’Hara
  • Someone still to be confirmed (wondering if they can beat the Astronaut at TedxSalford)

I’m signed up for who knows what…

Ketchup and Mustard

Remember when I asked the question multiple times, if I should sign up for a BBC Three ground breaking dating experiment titled, a year of making love?

Well I can tell you I did sign up and I was selected (yes I did tell them I was a BBC employee of course)

That’s about all I know right now… We’ve been asked to keep a date free (best I don’t reveal which one) and await further instructions.

I’m not sure what to expect but I’m nervously looking forward to it as a total experiment. What ever happens, I’m certainly going to be holding it together and not doing anything stupid, even if everyone else chooses to do so. I’ll be holding on to any dignity I have very tightly. Really hoping this is one of BBC Three’s better shows.
