We are not officially linked to the TED organization, but we like their style.  Unofficial versions of short, high-impact TED-talks are supposed to use the label "TED-x", but as Adirondackers we figure "TED-axe" works even better. So here is a tentative outline of what will happen in the VIC auditorium, our current series of "TED-axe talks & Tunes" that focus on  "The Art & Science of  THE UNEXPECTED."                    (Live links are shown in bold font)

TENTATIVE  - VIC Auditorium
