Today I’m delighted to announce that my friend Sara is giving a TED talk at the TedxTurku event, the theme being “Not Stereotypes”. I couldn’t be more pleased for her and hope the talk goes well!

I don’t actually know much about this whole TED thing, barring a few video links that find their way around social media. They always seem interesting and I hope this Turku (that’s a city in Finland, for anyone who might be wondering) variant gets some traction. The main TedxTurku page can be found here.

There is a live feed available, although I’m not sure if I’m going to have a chance to watch it as it’s happening (off to more X-rays today and I’m feeling pretty wiped out as the week closes). I assume, and hope, there will be an archived YouTube copy that we can enjoy. I’ll link it up when the time comes.

Off for poking and prodding and scanning and contrast-material-ingestion. Have as grand a weekend as you feel you can, my friends.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    Good luck to her! And to you, with all the medical stuff. I’ve had my fill and more of that lately, but it’s usually necessary….

      Ugh, yeah we’ll all went well on this end, lay in the machine for an hour listening to the radio, then came home.

      Actually it was back in the hospital where Toop was delivered, which was a nice trip down memory lane.
