Howdy folks, seeing that I'm averaging about one post per year on Google+, it's a rarity that I'm so quick to post something without giving it much thought. It's even more rare that I post a video of a talking teddy bear and a canine companion with a love for screen printing and moustaches. Yet, for +Safwat Saleem and his "Oh Expletive!" Kickstarter project, it's a no brainer, enjoy. ;)

For those who didn't catch the news flash, Safwat's project was featured on the Kickstarter weekly newsletter = instant funding and then some... currently at 496% funded!

Getting on TED.com is no easy feat, so we thought we would try our best to help some TEDxers out, and share some great TEDxTalks in the process! ;)

Found this great deal on Slickdeals and planning to use it to fly in some speakers for TEDxPhoenix 2011 (*hint *hint TEDx organizers). You get two free flights after your first purchase and there's a $99 annual fee that's waived for the first year and pretty much gets cancelled out each year since they give you 6,0000 points for renewing (=$100+ in SWA flight credit).

+Bonn Lahouti , +Jacob Lebo have you gotten in touch with anyone at TED HQ regarding your offer? If not, let me know and I can assist. BTW I've added you both so feel free to send me a message with the details of what you're offering, and your email address, and I can forward the info to the appropriate parties. ;)

I've +1'd several items on G+ and I can't seem to figure out why they're not showing up on my +1's tab ... is this happening to anyone else? Any ideas what could be up?

+Ron Goebel I'm hoping so, especially since it's supposed to work with most cases -- they started production early so I'm hoping to get mine around the end of April... I'll keep you posted. ;)

I must say, the peeps over at the Jackalope Ranch blog really picked some nice TEDTalks to share, I like their style! :)

Some G+ circles need no explanation... maybe.

Hey Justin, that's where I got it from ... although can't figure out why your avatar keeps changing, maybe the different accounts you're logged in with?

I can't thank +Safwat Saleem and +Adnan Alam enough for all their hard work in making the new TEDxPhoenix (http://www.tedxphoenix.com/) website a reality! Also, a hat tip to +Tiffany Duening for setting us up with a temp home page during the "web construction". ;)

Anyone looking for a 16Gb Flash Drive? Fry's Electronics has the Patriot Xporter for $13.99 after $5.00 mail-in rebate with free shipping until July 21st. Only caveat is that AZ, CA, GA, IN, IL, TN, TX , NV, and WA residents have to pay sales tax. Tax for AZ comes out to $1.39, so total for me was $15.38 once all is said and done. Still not bad ... it comes out 96 cents/Gb and reviews on Newegg are decent. ;)

...also forgot to mention that the $15 price mark has consistently made the "hot deal" section on Slickdeals.

Story

A PBS mind in an MTV world...
Introduction
I'm an Arizona native and recovering blogger who loves Kickstarter, Kiva, my MacBook Pro, and all things TED and TEDx. When I'm not geeking out on the Science Channel or breaking things at Humana RightSourceRx, I'm working on TEDxPhoenix and occasionally trying to figure out why the dog prefers sleeping in the cat's bed, while the cat prefers sleeping in a pile of dirty laundry.
Bragging rights
Once starred in the Intel YES campaign and my photo was featured in the center spread of the NYT ... not surprisingly, Intel killed that campaign pretty quickly. Also, I can fold a fitted sheet like a boss!
