“The first W stands for World….
“Water Wealth Women Waste War Well-being Wildlife Web Weather Wind Words Wonder Witness Wilderness Work Wunderlust Warming Wit & the Waking Dream
“WWW.WWW will be a gathering of the greatest, most interesting & curious minds in the world engaged in immersive & improvised conversation. It will celebrate the 21st century while drawing attention to the new patterns & convergences affecting our health & that of our planet.
“The experience will be streamed live to selected locations. It will be available by way of tablet app across all platforms.
“In the weeks following the app’s release, it will be updated with additional conversations captured during the breaks. It will also feature extraordinary visual imagery & a running line of Spanish & Mandarin translation.”
The event is further billed as “A celebration of improvised conversation: Intellectual jazz. Richard Saul Wurman, creator of the TED (1984-2002), TEDMED (1998-2010) & the eg conferences (2006), will celebrate improvised conversation in its most informative manner.
“No presentations; No schedule; No expensive tickets. Simply pairings of amazingly interesting individuals prompted by a question, generating a conversation. For 10 minutes to 50 minutes. And so it will go – conversations interlaced with threads of improvised music. An astrophysicist & a microbiologist. An actor & a playwright. A jazz musician & a classical one. An energetic exploration of the lost art of conversing.”
