I had no idea people thought my opinion mattered that much. I spent most of 2014 and 2015 starting a digital fabrication shop at the school I go to. (literally got kicked out of school over it). The H.R. guy I worked with at the time was on the selection committee said he would find a speaker. Crazy part was I only had a week to prepare because nobody told me I was giving a tedx talk until I got an email with my name on the speaker list.


Worth mentioning, most women at college bars have no clue what a ted talk is. Not a good pickup line.

Well, i think you did pretty good. fluently spoken, sounded like you didnt need the water anyway.. :lol: but overall, you made the important point, that your voice needs to be heard, all the while your voice was being heard.. o_O. having the platform. a voice. but i dig the quote, creativity is a huge part of my life. :D

glad you decided to ninja up, Amit

I hope they at least cleared up the business of kicking you out of school.

lol Ambushed with a TEDTalk, that's frightening! Well you come off like a pro, very well spoken in front of an audience. And obviously you are hitting on the wrong women if they aren't impressed by it. lol

ahahahaha, yeah I guess I need to change it up. I will say the women who are impressed by it very quickly get turned off by a bragger. At this point I just keep it to myself and let it come up naturally.

They did, but let me just say you are treated like a convict by everybody involved in that process. They all look down on you-on multiple occasions I was flat out told I wasn't cut out to be an engineer....I brushed it off but I felt really bad for kids who just accepted defeat.

Degrees only allow engineers to sit thier exams- the new solution based mind set can not be taught.
