“This event will bring together the best and brightest Santa Barbara has to offer, from the fields of technology, entertainment and design,” said Greenspan, TEDxAmericanRiviera co-host and Make It Work Inc. co-founder and CEO.

“As a 25-year Santa Barbara resident, I’m ecstatic to bring two of my passions together, TED and my love of this community, to inspire imagination and bring solid change locally and maybe even our world.”

In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has created TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxAmericanRiviera will provide TEDTalks video and speakers at the conference will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Both Citrix Online and Lynda.com have pledged equal, significant sponsorships for TEDxAmericanRiviera, showing their commitment to the goals and ideology of the event.

“We are so incredibly thankful for the generosity of Citrix and Lynda,” said Kymberlee Weil, TEDxAmericanRiviera co-host and co-founder and president of introNetworks. “Their donations coupled with our amazing lineup of speakers, breathtaking venue and attendees who are ready to change the world ensure this will be an event that can bring the discussion of ideas under a single roof that then will be shared with our neighbors globally.”

TEDxAmericanRiviera’s hosts, volunteers, speakers and guests all have a special connection with the Santa Barbara community, dream big and each Imagine that…the world can be better.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
