Wow, that's huge.
. <-- Global rock star!
Thats amazing news!
Sweet! I had no idea this was happening in Banff (which actually isn't too too far away from where I am situated). This is also the first I've heard of Canary in a Coal Mine - I really look forward to its release!
For anyone else like me who's hearing about this for the first time, here's a link that talks about Jen Brea and her work http://blog.ted.com/illuminating-an-illness-without-end-fellows-friday-with-jennifer-brea/
That's pretty amazing. I wonder if a small local protest could occur? It could get good publicity and with an election coming up...
Earlier, I read that Jen Brea's talk at the Banff TED summit TOMORROW would be "live-streamed". I've looked for a link allowing me to watch, but haven't found anything. Perhaps my interpretation of live-streamed is incorrect. Or, perhaps it is only available to members of the TED organization.
@JaimeS Can you shed some light on this? (It looks like the reference to live-streamed has been removed from the original #ME Action notice.)
Good luck Jen. Hope you enjoy it too.
People were saying that it would be live-streamed but Jen posted a tweet clarifying that it wouldn't be live-streamed. So it was a misunderstanding. Hopefully it will be available as a video shortly afterwards.
The original comment of 'live streamed' was a mistake. I removed from the article an hour or two after posting, but didn't realize that the FB post still said it (I edit the articles, but someone else summarizes them into FB posts). Many got a mistaken impression because of that. Mea culpa!
And yes, @Bob , hopefully it will be posted to YouTube or similar after the fact.

Thanks, @Bob - I hadn't thought about being able to follow things via TED's own Twitter feed, although it doesn't seem to have much detail about individual talks. Interesting, though:
Jen's talk seems to be part of a session beginning at 11:15 a.m. MDT, which is 6:15 p.m. UK time.

This from yesterday's TED Summit:
I hope they'll do the same for today - and get Jen's presentation up on YouTube asap!
Jen's up now!
