Join Involution Studios’ founder, entrepreneur Dirk Knemeyer at TEDx Denison this Saturday as he shares his perspective on “Real Utopias: From Dreams to Practice.”

As miraculous as the changes to the world over the last 20 years seem, since the Internet became mainstream, most of those changes are conveniences and not truly meaningful difference in our world. In “Utopia in our Pocket” Dirk proposes that, thanks to the proliferation of the smartphone, we can start to think about radical changes that will fundamentally shift the way we live for the better.

TEDxDenisonU will consist of 13 talks by 14 speakers on topics ranging from social entrepreneurship to the origins of pride and success.

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
