March 15, 2019
For the new TEDxAtlanta’s 2019 annual flagship conference on March 15, 2019, we have chosen Control+Alt+Delete as our theme.
Control+Alt+Delete is a keyboard shortcut commonly used to trigger a system reset that was originally designed to enable software programmers to be more efficient. It was, in essence, a shortcut. Metaphorically, it is associated with wiping the slate clean and starting anew.
In 2019, we will explore how and why progress and innovation have become synonymous with speed and efficiency. We are seeking unique ideas that explore speed and the corresponding social, economic and technological implications on the way we live as well as the implications of “reset and resetting.” undertaken by organizations, systems and individuals.
