TEDxSonomaCounty | Perspectives

Saturday, November 5, 2016

Jackson Theater at Sonoma Country Day School - Santa Rosa, California

Is the glass half-full or half-empty? In the famous optical illusion, you see an old woman, and I see a young lady. When the Voyager 1 left the solar system, humans saw their home—the Earth—as we never had before. We were no longer at the center of the universe, but living on a “tiny, pale blue dot” in the vastness of space. TEDxSonomaCounty will bring together leading thinkers and doers to delve into these questions and more as they explore the theme, Perspectives. Join the conversation by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
