Late last year, I was invited to give a TEDx talk just to the west of Atlanta. TEDxDouglasville will be held on Saturday, April 4th at 10:30am. This event has the motto, “In with the Old, In with the New”. I’ve decided to speak on galaxy evolution, using both the old and new (i.e. nearby and high-z galaxies) to uncover the journeys of galaxies through cosmic time. It should be a great experience. I actually have to make my slides far in advance, unlike conferences and colloquiums! Additionally, I’ll probably practice it a couple of times since I’m revamping the style of my public talk into something much more provoking and entertaining for TEDx.
