I know it’s been a while since the event, but the TEDxVancouver presenter videos are finally online. I could only find 2 of them so far and will keep an eye out for the rest. The other presenter videos will be added here as soon as they are posted online (or as soon as I find them if they are already online.)
If anybody reading this blog has links to any TEDxVancouver 2012 videos that I’m missing, please reach out to me via email or Twitter at @laurentmunier and I’ll get them added.

An excellent, well informed and well thought out debate on Canada’s Oil Sands and especially the proposed pipelines that are supposed to run through BC.
It’s great to see some common sense thrown in this mix and not just yelling and screaming from both sides. It seems like the pipeline debate in BC is dominated by PR talking points on both sides.
It’s refreshing to see 2 people who are clearly on opposite sides of this debate talk it out and propose some sensible solutions.
Marin Katusa – Casey Research Chief Energy Investment Strategist
Rex Weyler – Co-founder of Greenpeace
A great read from the Raptitude blog. In today’s go go go world, sometimes all we need to do is stop and do nothing.
First, slow down, like you’ve just turned off the highway into a quiet neighborhood. Normal rat-race speed is unsuitable for what we’re about to do. Hurrying through the process of relaxing defeats its purpose.
Smashing new mix to get you into 2013.
Benji B with a 16 piece string ensemble for a 52 minute mix. Recorded live at BBC Maida Vale studios.
It gets better and better as it goes along.
Here’s just the strings part in video.
Here’s the full 2 hour show on BBC Radio 1
What an excellent event. Thank you to all who attended this year’s TEDxVancouver event.
