Jane Poynter- Biosphere 2
Jane Poynter tells her story of living two years and 20 minutes in Biosphere 2 -- an experience that provoked her to explore how we might sustain life in the harshest of environments. This is the first TED talk drawn from an independently organized TEDx event, held at the University of Southern California,
This is the first talk to be featured as a TEDx event, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
It marks the official launch of the TEDx concept, and program,. It aims to promote local events with the TED spirit. You can learn more at www.ted.com/tedx.

Hosting our own in NZ
TED is looking for more events from other parts of the world. The details are here. I think this would be an excellent opportunity for Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch. Even better it would be great to see one of the big Art Galleries or Museums picking up the challenge?
