I was speaking to a friend the other day who despite living in the New York metro area and despite being an NYU alum told me that he had not heard of last year’s inaugural World Science Festival at NYU in Greenwich Village.
Alas, I wanted to help get the word out. It is a must see for any new yorker, and I would even encourage out-of-towners to consider the trip. Judging on last year’s event, and considering it was the very first, I have to say that I was amazingly impressed with the quality of the production, speakers and content and extremely overwhelmed the the quantity and diversity of the program. Anyone familiar with the TED Talks series should note that this event looks and feels very similar to TED.
