Edward (Ted) Kenny
Grew up in Texas in a family engaged in small business – real estate, A/C, etc. At an early age became fascinated w/space travel. Entered college as a business major but left college as an engineer – and running a commercial A/C business for a short time.
Now have found my way to a place where my avocation aligns with my vocation – and in a place with people passionate about their work. I can travel broadly (Shanghai last Fall), pursue experiences from cross-country skiing in Yellowstone 2 weeks ago to the immersion of a play on Broadway, eat in a time of creative food, and have the chance to give and give back.
I am lucky in most things and I know it.
I am like many TEDsters.
This is also a time of change though, so coming to TEDActive is looking at the question of what is next. As a start, I am particularly interested in a goal of changing my balance even more heavily to content-creator vs. consumer this year. Also considering the question of government, engaging more through items like TED – showcasing innovations/innovators. Several other diverse ideas helped along by the creativity of other TEDx and TEDActive personell. Should be fun.
