Gallaudet will host a TEDx event next year. TEDx is step-child of the popular, yearly TED gatherings, which have grown in popularity thanks to YouTube. The short presentations given in front of a live audience are easily digestible and straightforward--sometimes humorous and sometimes emotionally moving. The TEDx events are self-organized, local chapters of the TED Conference. The Gally event will take place Friday, February 28 with help from Assistant Professor of Criminology and Sociology Thomas Horejes. It will be unique--the first TED event where all the presenters will use ASL. English captions will be added to the videos that come out of the gathering. If you have an idea about who should be included among the 20 or so speakers, you have until November 15th to submit a proposal. There's more information at the TEDx page here and at the Gallaudet University website here.
