TEDxGrassValley -The Stuff of Life - at Foundry tomorrow- register online

Looks like there'll be some good speakers. From See Jane Do email:
TEDxGrassValley, an independently produced event, operated under license from TED, will live stream from the TEDGlobal 2011 conference, on July 12-15, on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 to the Miners Foundry Cultural Center, 1030am- 630pm.

This year's theme for TEDGlobal is "The Stuff of Life". What is life? And how can it be better lived? From the secrets of the biological processes that take place in our body, to the cultural constructs that take place in our society; from the technologies and resources that make life possible and enjoyable, to the themes that define our humanity -- or threaten it: TEDGlobal 2011 will be a celebration of life, in all its forms.
