We have joined our first TEDx in Beijing at 751 D-Park yesterday!
The theme was Old City x New Soul. There were 6 speakers and 2 TED videos. Although we did not understand why showing us the TED video, when we can watch it at home.
Out of 6 speakers, we found Lilly Bussmann's speech on stressing the importance of small talks in term of social skill quite interesting. She used her conversation experience with Beijing taxi driver to illustrate the relationship between "why" conversation and "what conversation". It seemed like she took taxi quite often. That might contradict with another speaker, Shannon Bufton, who promoted a bicycle city model. On the other hand, we were impressed by Tiantian Li's effort in fighting against FMA (False Medical Advertisement).
