The TEDxWomen Adams Morgan event took place a week ago Saturday, but due to a lack of wifi -and the event taking place in an area of the building with spotty 3g/4G access- there wasn’t as much social activity as one would normally associate with a TEDx event.
Since social media is usually what I use to compile a full view of events of this nature from multiple vantage points, I had to wait to get my own video edited and uploaded, or for enough material to appear to make a post worth your while.
Now that there’s video from every speech made at TedxWomen Adams Morgan available from their YouTube channel, as well as from the main TEDxWomen event, there’s enough of a variety of content for me to compile to Storify document, which I’ve embedded below. If you’re viewing this via syndication or email and can’t view the embed, please click through to the site.
In a way though, the lack of steady web access was refreshing. There are many times when I cover events as I go using social media, or even pen and paper, thinking that I’ll misquote someone or miss something along the way. It’s not like the experience I have when I go just to simply experience an event.
With this I was able to catch the explanation for why TEDxWomen Adams Morgan decided to have men speak that day. It’s a controversial choice apparently, one I found mostly intriguing, but for them, warranted an explanation during the program. A pretty good explanation I might add, as you’ll see from the video coverage below or the included reference to their blog post in the links section.
In addition to the ability to make comments below, if you use Twitter, please share your comments using the #TEDxWomen, #wgbiz, or #TEDxAdmo hashtags so we can expand the discussion beyond our own group. Thanks! Hope you enjoy it.
