TED Talkers

TED Talkers will meet to watch a short online talk from TED. Directly after the Ted Talk, the group will review specific questions about the subject matter and discuss how it directly impacts our lives. Topics will be diverse and include technology, entertainment, design, arts, science, business, global issues, and more. After each session, the group will select a new topic for the following month.
