My TEDx Houston talk, mostly about HoustonSorry for the post delay this week - got back midweek from California and ran right into a giant pile of work. Back in June I had the opportunity to speak at TEDx Houston on the UH campus. It was a fantastic (and yet nerve-wracking) experience I really enjoyed. Well, the professionally edited video of my talk is finally available: "What is Social Systems Architecture and why does it matter?" It covers kind of a wide range of topics over 20 minutes (the first 14 mins are all Houston):
- The Opportunity Urbanism philosophy of cities and how Houston is an exemplar of that model
- Branding Houston
- A transportation/transit solution for Houston and other decentralized cities
- Organization 2.0 and the Bossless Organization model (winner of the Management Innovation Prize)
- Reforming K-12 education with empowerment
Enjoy. As always, thoughts and feedback are welcome in the comments.
UPDATE: The Urbanophile comments and summarizes his key takeaways.
