Dr. Eleanor DobsonTEDxZurich Molly CrockettI am proud to have been on the organizing team of TEDxZurich 2011. With the help of great sponsors, including the Swiss National Television Network, at which the event was held, amazing speakers and performers, and a full house of 450 attendees, we celebrated and shared “ideas worth spreading”.

I was on the speakers committee, moon lighted with a bit of tech help, and the day of was rushing around making sure all the speakers were happy and prepared for their big moment on stage.

It’s extremely hard to pick a favorite talk of the day, but the speaker I am most proud of and moved by is Dr. Eleanor Dobson who gives us a peek into the belly of CERN and how modern big science is done. Dr. Dobson’s talk was one of the talks I helped curate, in conjunction with the TEDxZurich team, and came about after I heard her passion on the subject and suggested she speak.

Don’t stop there though, there are 20 videos from the day and hundreds of ideas ready to run loose. Here they are in roughly chronological order:
