Homegrown TEDx lectures coming to Camarillo Library

From The Camarillo Acorn

” While working his way through college, Georg Winkler would often get home from his late-night restaurant shift in the wee hours of the morning.Unable to sleep, he would stay up watching TED Talks on YouTube.Launched in 1984 as a conference in Vancouver that merged the topics of technology, engineering and design, TED Talks invites leading thinkers and doers to deliver short, powerful presentations of 18 minutes or less to small audiences, usually about 100 people. The talks are made available free online at TED.com.TED Talks speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall and Sir Richard Branson.“I learned a lot from watching those videos,” said Winkler, who now works as events coordinator for the Camarillo Public Library and manages the library’s Russell Fischer Business Collection.”
