TEDx Silicon Valley: Living by Numbers

Tomorrow at Stanford University’s new Knight Management Center, a full-day event called “TEDx Silicon Valley: Living by Numbers” will be held. Although the event is a part of the TED talks series by title, it is an independently organized gathering (hence, the ‘x’ in the title) by Stanford’s Center for Social Innovation and  Graduate School of Business, aiming to get thinkers and makers of the Bay Area together and discuss the issues around social innovation .This how the organizers describe their aims at the TEDx website:

“We’ll discuss new things people can measure and never thought could be measured. We’ll talk about the power of crowd sourcing and the collective power of small coordinated actions. We’ll try and understand the sheer scale of the world population and the danger of large scale poverty. We’ll explore the importance of the right data for nonprofit program evaluation. We’ll walk the fine line of analysis paralysis versus risk taking. We’ll feature artists who are working with data to communicate new ideas to the general public, and much much more.”

The event will be streamed live from here.

I’ll be Tweeting and Blogging about the event in detail later..
