Rodrigo Arboleda spoke about OLPC at TEDxRio this week to a crowd of 800, with 7000 people watching online. The conference was a big hit in the Brazilian blogosphere, and one of the top trending topics in the world that day. TEDx has really captured the essence of TED without much of the overhead, and it’s great to see it flourish. Everyone there felt they were discussing how to contribute to human knowledge and development, and they left wondering how they could follow up on the event in more rural parts of the country – a great audience for an olpc talk.
The session will be up online soon, and you should watch it; for now, an image from the floor:
