Robert J. Sawyer is one of only eight writers ever to have won all three of the world's top awards for best sciencefiction novel of the year: the Hugo Award (which he won for Hominids), the Nebula Award (for The Terminal Experiment), and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award (for Mindscan). The ABC TV series "FlashForward" was based on his novel of the same name. His 21st novel, Triggers, comes out in April 2012. In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
