A quick heads up: On Saturday, an independent TED conference will get underway in New York City. It’s dubbed TEDxNYED, and a top notch lineup of speakers (including Lawrence Lessig, Michael Wesch, Gina Bianchini, Henry Jenkins, Jay Rosen and others) will focus on a topic near and dear to our readers’ hearts: how new media and technology will shape the future of education. And the best part? You can watch a live stream of the conference here. Look for the web streaming to take place between 10am EST and 6pm EST. Again, this all happens this Saturday. Please spread the word! Your friends will thank you.
