Melinda Sacks, director of media initiatives in the Stanford University Office of Public Affairs, is the producer and curator of TEDxStanford.
In the week running up to the event, she has been working feverishly to bring every last detail together. "The goal of TEDxStanford," Sacks wrote in an email to the Weekly, "is to open the doors of the university to the global community, and to share the exploration and discovery that happens here" -- that is, at Stanford. Sacks said the event gives the university the opportunity to showcase all the great work being done at Stanford: "Remarkable arts and untold stories from laboratories, dance studios, engineering classrooms, and all seven of our schools" will be told over the course of the day, she said. Sacks is hopeful that people will leave TEDxStanford with a head full of ideas and an inspired heart, and that, ultimately, that may result in real, meaningful action. "In developing and producing TEDxStanford I have tried to take the best of what TED has to offer, and merge it with the best of Stanford," she wrote.
