Scott is a speed-reading, vegetarian, holistic learning, productivity hacking recent university graduate. And, for the last five years he's been experimenting to find out how to get more from life. His current project is to learn MIT's 4-year curriculum for computer science in 12 months, without taking any classes.

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)
