A farmer and a former mortgage broker who quit to be a magazine editor are two scheduled speakers at the Nov. 15 TEDx Jupiter conference, a national thoughtfest that has attracted the likes of Al Gore, Jane Goodall and Bono to its out-of-the-box format.
The speakers, who are not paid, each have up to 18 minutes to make their presentation. Then the speakers and the audience exchange ideas. Presentations are streamed live over the Internet.
