Ending Borg Private Corporate Agenda - Rethinking Privacy: Sean Blagsvedt At TEDxBangaloreChange - Reconnect To The Multiverse :)
To harness the power of digital social networking for India's poor, Sean Blagsvedt created the job search site Babajob.com. In the last few years, he has been dedicated to helping to try to solve this problem at scale. They have had about 700,000 users in India and are expanding to Indonesia. Their services are live on five mobile carriers and they add another 2,500 people every week. And there are thousands and thousands of people that have gotten jobs through his site.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
