Ideas worth spreading.

Last week, the Spangler Library hosted a live-stream of the 2016 TED Annual Conference at the Worthington campus. The event offered thought-provoking, multi-disciplinary talks from leading experts and visionaries representing a wide variety of fields.

A few highlights:

  • Adam Savage, host of Mythbusters, discussed his love of cosplay and the incredible community  it can create.
  • Joe Gebbia, co-founder of Airbnb, talked about how letting complete strangers into your home can be a workable business model.
  • Dave Isay, founder of StoryCorps, detailed how an app allowed for the unprecedented collection of the hopes, dreams, and fears of everyday people.

Over 75 students, faculty, and staff attended the event. Be sure to look for more engaging programming from your library!
