TEDx Talks
Musician Scott Mescudi, aka Kid Cudi, returns to his high school to talk about growing up and his career path in the music industry. Born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi in Cleveland, Kid Cudi began rapping while attending Shaker Heights High School and later Solon High School. In 2004, Kid Cudi moved to Brooklyn, NY to pursue his rap career. He released his first mixtape, “A Kid Named Cudi,” in 2008. The mixtape earned Kanye West’s attention, leading him to sign Cudi to his GOOD Music imprint. As an up-and-coming artist, Cudi contributed hooks and lyrics to songs by West and Jay-Z, including “Heartless,” “Paranoid” and “Already Home.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Most end up in the ocean, where they pollute the water and harm marine life; the rest are burned in garbage piles, where they release harmful dioxins into the atmosphere. Melati and Isabel Wijsen are on a mission to stop plastic bags from suffocating their beautiful island home of Bali. Their efforts — including petitions, beach cleanups, even a hunger strike — paid off when they convinced their governor to commit to a plastic bag-free Bali by 2018. "Don't ever let anyone tell you that you're too young or you won't understand," Isabel says to other aspiring activists.

Announcing the Miso Project Today we are releasing the first part of the Miso project, a set of Open Source tools designed to make it faster and easier to create high quality interactive and data visualization content. This project has been made possible by support from our Global Development desk, who are funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation & in collaboration with Bocoup. The first part of Miso to be made public is a JavaScript library called Dataset, the website is here and the code is on Github, you can follow along development via Twitter @TheMisoProject One of the most common patterns we've found while building JavaScript-based interactive content is the need to handle a variety of data sources such as JSON files, CSVs, remote APIs and Google Spreadsheets. Dataset simplifies this part of the process by providing a set of powerful tools to import those sources and work with the data. Once data is in a Dataset, it becomes simple to select, group, and calculate properties of, the data.

In 2009, Marc Andreessen remarked "banking is just information science." Inspired by Marc's words, Bruce Cahan and the Team set out to organize TEDxNewWallStreet to explore a banking system different than the Industrial Age system we inherited. What if Silicon Valley or other technology clusters grew New Wall Streets, on quite different terms than exist in New York? How would they spearhead technology in faster, cheaper, more transparent and accountable ways that contrast with the recent (and recurring) issues of the game as defined and played on old Wall Street? Let's move beyond pundits who deflect true innovation and reinforce a cynical inevitability by portraying bankers and banking as forever unhealthy or worse.

How To Bring Live Tweets To Readers Not On Twitter Featuring live tweets on news websites is a great way of bringing readers who may not use Twitter into the conversations that are happening there. Large news sites often use custom code to accomplish the task. Smaller sites tend to use Twitter’s own widget, which I find slow and inadequate for the task. Fortunately, there is a solution that uses a tool that many of us are already familiar with: CoveritLive.
