Tedx Detroit

TED Talks (Ideas in Technology, Entertainment and Design that are "worth spreading") will be talked about and hopefully, from there, spread throughout the city of Detroit -on Wednesday (info here) inside Cobo Hall's newly opened Grand Ballroom -Journalists, business owners, inventors and artists will be among the numerous speakers -including Leo Gold ("Hardcore Pawn"), Kevin Krease (X-Games Detroit), Jason Hall (Co-Founder Detroit Bike City / Slow Roll Detroit), Amy Kaherl (Detroit SOUP). 

Also invited?
 Indie-rocker turned synth-dabbling, neo-new-waver George Morris (currently fleshed out with a full band of performing musicians called The Gypsy Chorus). So there's your musical (/"entertainment") portion of TEDx-Detroit (X= the locally-based independent organizers who brought this event to life).

Follow TedXDetroit on Twitter
Check out their YouTube page later for updated live-streams. 
And keep your ears and mind open - as these talks should be particularly referential towards the tense and extraordinary times this city is currently working its way through (i.e. declaring Bankruptcy).
