What would you do if you had 18 minutes to impart a meme on a stage in front of an audience with three cameras and no notes? I created a lecture that combined the ideas of three essays I had written in the past, and then added some personal stuff. They encouraged making it personal in the “TED Commandments” materials that I received when I agreed to strip off my clothes and waltz around in a bikini… I mean talk on stage and be fascinating with no notes… I have done so many things that scare me in one year. I’m actually getting use to it. If it doesn’t scare me than what’s the point? Now I wait while they edit. Honored to be chosen as the guest speaker. Still recovering..
