There were technical difficulties throughout, and my time was cut short rather curtly, but overall I thought the event was great. Congratulations to the coordinators.
Ultimately, though, as much as I was happy to ramble on about language realities in poor lighting and even poorer technical conditions, I’m left laughing at the generic ridiculousness and absurdity of it all. I think the genre of the Ted talk kind of takes itself a bit too seriously, and that’s not what I’m about. Still, there are some interesting ideas in here!
