Just a quick note: I’ve officially applied to TED to host a TEDx Buffalo event, within a year’s time. The license for the previous event expired today, and, in short, TED requires an individual to be the license holder, and hold their event within one year. So I (Kevin Purdy) am that guy, and the conference will happen by Q2 2012, at the latest (though likely a good bit before that).
Updates will appear here and in the usual Twitter/Facebook channels when I hear word back. We are in something of a tricky spot with the domain you’re looking at (tedxbuffalo.com), and there’s a chance that we might have to move over to a new-but-very-similar domain. In any case, stay tuned!
