TEDxVancouver - Reid Gower - Defining the Frontier

Reid Gower has a passion in promoting scientific literacy in the general population leading him to develop his video series. His media creation, called The Sagan Series, borrows the words of the late astrophysicist Carl Sagan and has gone on to inspire millions across the world. Reid is Canadian and lives on Vancouver Island. He is a graduate of the University of Victoria. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    You’re right. And the? fact that it’ll be on Fox of all networks means it should even more of an impact.

    I love TED too, but Neil is working on something with far more impact than a Ted Talk: a new? version of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, to be aired in 2014.

    Cosmos is on? DVD! And although it’s “dated”, it’s still wonderful.
