On Saturday, October 27, 2012, I attended the second annual TEDx AmoskeagMillyard in Manchester, NH. The emcee was Virginia Prescott from NHPR’s Word of Mouth. It’s always wonderful to see how many local speakers present their ideas in these short 18 minute talks. As of today (11/2/12) the TEDx website does not include the videos of these talks.
