My Island View

Now that we have an understanding of who attends these conferences, let us consider the “what and why” of the sessions presented at these conferences.

Edsurge

Smith is not one for silence ( he delivered a TED talk about the “danger of silence” in 2014 , in fact) and has used digital venues including Twitter to encourage others to speak up and recognize how history shapes the present.
