Tom Henderson is a Cascadian mathematician, comedian, and writer. You can hear him talking about quantum game theory and whether to buy a monkey in the podcast “Math for Primates.” His first book, Punk Mathematics, will be finished in 2015, having been rather optimistically named Kickstarter’s “Best Publishing Project of 2010.”
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMtHood, where x=independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxMtHood event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Visit TED.com to learn more.
