Hey nerds! This Friday (Dec. 2), Brooklyn gets its own TED event at Brooklyn Bowl, TEDxBrooklyn. The stage program will feature an all day-bonanza of talks from local entrpreneurs, artists, activists, storytellers and scientists, including comedian Eugene Mirman, Sean Meenan, founder of Habana Outpost, and Ruth Ozeki, an author/filmmaker and ordained Zen minister. Sound cool? Want to go? Too bad! This crap’s been sold out for a long time. But you can still watch it for free: stream it all day from 9am to 6pm or watch it with fellow Tedheads at one of the live streaming parties at the Knitting Factory, 61 Local and Brooklyn Brainery.

What’s a TED talk?  TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a non-profit that began as a set of conferences in 1984. Since 2006, the talks given there have been available online. And people are really into them. In the new Muppets movie, there’s even a buried joke about Scooter being on his way to a TED conference until he gets yanked back in with the old gang. Several local businesses are sponsoring TEDx Brooklyn, including Momofuku Milk Bar, Brooklyn Brainery and Brooklyn Brewery.
