Another recent fantastic event held in Greenville was TedxGreenville. The production was top notch and almost all the presenters took their job seriously and did a great job. All the presentations are now online. I'd suggest you give them a watchin'. But, if you're going to watch just one it probably should be Tradd Cotter's presentation on mushrooms. It was the most talked about presentation of the day.
One of the big deals to come from the Google on Main event was Time Magazine sending a reporter down to our little town. To paraphrase the reason why, Greenville was one of the only cities doing something interesting. The article was posted last night and I believe will also appear in the print edition out today. The We Are Feeling Lucky campaign is also going to be featured heavily in Time Magazine's iPad edition with more photos and videos attached to this story. (The iPad arrives on April 3rd in case you haven't heard.). Cool stuff all around.
PS: We got to spend some time with the reporter after the event. He's young guy, early 20's, and Evan gave him a great piece of advice which every early 20's person should know. Buy a tuxedo.
The We Are Feeling Lucky experience is one of the coolest things to happen in Greenville since I've arrived. The outpouring of support from the government, business, and individuals is something special and pretty unique to Greenville. Our favorite side project was a photo essay of some Google mice falling in love with the Greenville mice. Southside High School's IB Design Technology class, led by Tom Rogers, thought up, created and executed on this vision quickly and with little budget. We were smitten by the idea and the execution and asked Mr. Rogers to tell the story of how a couple Mice found love.
