tedxmarkhamstreetbanner305I think the official news broke today about the speaking lineup for TEDx Markham Street (not TEDx Little Rock). I blogged about this event a while back in anticipation of the formal announcement and couldn’t really let the cat out of the bag then about my session. I still can’t go into a lot of detail about the session topic, you’ll have to keep waiting for an announcement on their end –this event is pretty highly coordinated by some awesome people and I’m really looking forward to it. The only hint that I will give in regards to my session is that I’ve got a lot of things to share and it’s all stuff that’s near and dear to my heart…
