TEDx WHAT IF
April 27, 2013 TEDxPortland celebrated its third-annual experience at the Portland Art Museum. The theme was ‘WHAT IF?’ — inspired by the magic 8 Ball toy. Over 1,000 people were treated to 16 thought-provoking talks and three performances over the course of the eventful day.
TEDx UNCHARTED TERRITORY
In 1804 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led the Corps of Discovery across the continent, arriving in what is now Astoria, Oregon, in December 1805. Their remarkable journey into the unknown evokes the pioneering spirit of all Oregonians and is the inspirational platform from which we spread ideas in search of the new frontier. “Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our theme this year was ‘Crossroads’. A crossroads is a place where two things impact one another in a way that creates change. It's where technology impacts behavior, where beliefs create ideas, or where different branches of social science come together to create a whole new philosophy or field.
