It was a packed two days of some incredible thoughts from an impressive lineup of speakers. From the very tiniest antibodies in our white blood cells to the very huge galactic mysteries yet to be solved, TEDxNashville gave attendees a lot to think about.

I believe that part of the appeal of TED Talks is the “purity” of the platform. No politics, religion, or advertising. No fees or honorariums. Viewers appreciate that TED Talks are a safe space, where the only agenda is enhancing society through imparting knowledge, sharing ideas, and sparking creativity.
