TEDx Des Moines 2011


Creators, catalysts, entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, designers, scientists, thinkers, and doers from central Iowa gathered on June 26th, 2011 to share what they are most passionate about — positive ideas for the world from Des Moines.

During the independently organized TED event, visual recordings of speaker content were sketched by Jocelyn Wallace, done live and in real-time.

The visuals were displayed and shared at the event in two ways:

1) Shared Real-Time on Twitter. While speakers presented, Jocelyn shared the visuals via Twitter using the hashtag #TedXDSM and @TedxDesMoines. This allowed participants to follow the stream on their mobile devices and re-tweet or share them to their networks.

2) Displayed on Large Screens: During intermissions the visuals were displayed on large screens for all participants to see. This created quite a buzz, encouraging more engagement and interaction with the speaker content they just heard.
