While tires were spinning at the Bill Armstrong Stadium during Little 500, the Buskirk-Chumley Theater presented its own well-attended event.
TEDxBloomington, an independently organized TED event, celebrated its third Bloomington appearance Saturday with the theme “What Goes ’Round.”
“It’s very much a Bloomington project,” said Luci McKean, official curator for TEDxBloomington.
She opened the show with emcee Sarah Smith-Robbins, a professor in the Kelley School of Business.
McKean encouraged the audience to take out their cell phones and live tweet throughout the show. The event was streamed live worldwide.
Following the introduction, Jeffery Kline, an emergency physician and researcher at IU’s School of Medicine, took the stage.
