I was very excited to learn that George Takei will be speaking at a free TEDxKyoto event here in Kyoto on June 4th. It’s on a Wednesday, which just happens to be my day off from work. I’m definitely going!
(I really am! I just booked my seat here: http://peatix.com/event/37678)
If you don’t know who George Takei is (where have you been?), here’s a reminder of just how brilliant he is:
George Takei will be appearing along with diplomat, Patrick Linehan who gave a wonderful speech at the TEDxKyoto event last year on the value of being “different”. Actually, that was my favorite talk of the entire event so I am really looking forward to seeing him speak again too.
Here are the event details from our friends at TEDxKyoto:
