TEDGlobal bloggers on the scene in Arusha

Aside from posting great coverage of the sessions and speakers at TEDGlobal 2007, the conference’s many bloggers offer a glimpse of conference life — the spark of meeting so many people with so much to share.

DNA captures the thrill:
“… today is my first day at the TED Global Conference being held here in Arusha, Tanzania. ‘Tis the first time TED has come to Africa and I am straight up meeting the most AMAZING people every few minutes. It’s almost like a brain overload kid. I already have a bunch of folks to followup w/ and some potential collaborators and I haven’t been here 24hrs yet.”

Rafiq Philips, our Web AddiCT says:
“Haven’t picked my jaw up from the floor yet, All these passionate people. Wow.”

Mental Acrobatics writes about the blogger convergence:
“It is wonderful that there is a healthy mix of bloggers amongst the TED Fellows. I’ll highlight the KBW members who are here apart from myself; Afromusing, Bankelele, Kenyan Pundit and White African. Ndesanjo is here as well running things on his home ground. Outside KBW Jen Brea and Andrew Heavens are here too.”
