How about a great Talk Event in EUG?

Hey Folks, Just finished watching a video from TEDx in PDX on the design channel on the EugeTech slack and I thought it was good.  I also noticed that there was a TEDx in Bend so I poked around a little and found nothing for Eugene in recent years. A few years back I spoke at a TAO event titled Downtown Millennials (or similar) about Maker stuff and that was fun.  There was another event about Innovation Districts that was pretty swell as well.  I have not heard about another event.  Those were pretty focused on downtown and growing the economy. What to folks think about a broader talk event with a full spectrum of speakers with a variety of topics in the TED "ideas worth spreading" vein? I'm sure it a ton of work but there is a framework for it: https://www.ted.com/participate/organize-a-local-tedx-event I don't know that we would need the branding and the template really.  Personally, I think there is a lot of great ideas floating around and some fun personalities that could make for a fun event. regards, Mark
