Way Out There in the Desert

We are settling back in to LA after a great week out in the desert for TEDActive. What an amazing invitation it was to spend the week out in Palm Springs setting up the Poketo Shop for TED. Not only that, but to have the opportunity to listen and dive in to all of the TED 2011 talks while mixing in a little fun at the same time… it doesn’t get much better.

After three days of mind blowing talks, everyone was ready to bust out… and just in time for the TEDActive party out in the desert. We hopped on a bus, drove about 30 minutes out to the middle of nowhere, to a strange, old western town. This was not a genuine relic of the past, but, rather a town built like it was back in the dusty, saloon days. Although, with music by Dublab, a dance performance by Ryan Heffington and his crew, a karaoke RV truck on standby, jeep rides in the moonlit desert, and food galore… we experienced a world far from the wild west.

By the way, the last two days of TED and TEDActive were amazing… highlights included talks from Roger Ebert, John Hunter, Kathryn Schulz, Stanley McChrystal, Kate Hartman, Eli Pariser, Janet Echelman, and more. Last but not least, a finale that captured the attention of just about everyone… a water ballet by Aqualillies. This is probably what it was like in Palm Spring 1950. Take me back… now.
