You can see all the video here.
Wolves and Brownies: Laurie Smith Camp
From TEDxOmaha: "Laurie Smith Camp is the Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska." In her talk, "she dissects how we instill ethical codes into boys and girls."
My Chuck Close problem: Scott Blake
From TEDxOmaha:" While best known for his Barcode Art, Scott Blake has created new works that are scandalous, witty, fun, pornographic, humorous and about a thousand other adjectives viewers might use when seeing them for the first time." In his talk, he "recounts the story about how he was inspired by an artist, emulated that artist and was eventually shut down by the same artist."
The new revolutionists: Laura Burhenn
From TEDxOmaha: "Laura Burhenn is a singer-songwriter and front woman of the Saddle Creek, Omaha-based band, The Mynabirds." In her talk, she "asks us to consider who is a revolutionary. Many people change the world. How do we hear those voices? Her story winds through music, philosophy, and photography."
