Hello, I'm Joe Strout. (TEDx Youth talk)
...I've got two boys, 10 and 14 years old, and the three of us have been working for the past year or so on a video game about space settlement.

So starts the talk I'll be giving at the TEDx Youth conference tomorrow.  I'm the last speaker in the morning session — a position of honor, as it means people will be talking about space settlement as they go to lunch.

Like all TED talks, I expect the videography and editing will be very high-quality, and the final video will be posted on the web for all to enjoy.  I'll post a link here when it's ready.  The talk is mostly about real-life orbital space settlement, not about the game in particular, though I do mention it in several places as a way to make the topic more... er... topical.

And there, now the Welcome forum is no longer empty, and everyone who's been too shy to make the first post now has no excuse!

Well, that went well!  There were about 2000 enthusiastic, mostly high-school kids in the audience, plus maybe a few hundred adults.  Many of them came up to me between sessions to talk more about space settlement and our game.  It was really great to see so much excitement and optimism in one place.

If anyone from TEDx has found this site: welcome!  I hope I managed to meet you today, but either way, please hit the Register link, make yourself an account, and say hello!  We'd love to hear from you.

- Joe

P.S. When the talk video is posted, I'll be sure to post about it here and on the blog.
