Goodbye New York, Hello Bloomington

We had a wonderful time in New York this week.

Gever spoke at TEDxEast (Tinker, Noodle, Obsess) and we met lots of interesting people. His talk should be posted at some point – we’ll update the Press page with the details.

A car picked us up (at the crack of dawn!) for Gever’s appearance on the local PIX-11 Morning News, where he shocked the hosts by having them lick 9-volt batteries.

Continuing a challenging trend, another dawn wake-up call for Gever in order to talk to Dan Damon on BBC World Update (heard on the BBC World Service)

Finally, we introduced a bunch of kids to some Dangerous Things at the Barnes&Noble on the Upper East Side. (If you missed us, they have some signed books available for sale there.) My card reader is having trouble, so I’ll post some photos later.

Gever is now in Bloomington, Indiana, preparing for tomorrow’s TEDxBloomington (The Wisdom of Play). The event will be webcast live – my best guess is that Gever will be speaking shortly after 11am.

If you live in/near Bloomington and can’t make it to TEDxBloomington, Gever will also be speaking at the Monroe County Public Library in the Auditorium on Sunday, May 15 at 3:30pm.
