Metasite + TEDxVilnius 2016: Supporting the spreading of Ideas Worth Spreading!


Being a team of engineers, analysts, designers and project managers serving superdemanding clients across Europe and beyond, we practice creative problem solving on a daily basis and always strive to develop solutions that, aside from helping our clients achieve their objectives, improve the quality of life for every one of us through technology and design. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we have been fans of the TED global conference series and the excellent platform since late 1990s.

It is fair to say that over the years our worldview has been largely shaped by many of the thinkers and doers we first saw on – be it Hans Rosling, the hyperdynamic Karolinska Institute professor who completely changed the way we saw the big picture of global development, or Benjamin Zander, the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra conductor and TED speaker who reinfected us with passion for classical music, or Johann Hari, who turned on its head our understanding of any kind of addiction, or Tony Robbins, who explained the “invisible forces” motivating our actions without resorting to all too common banalities of second-rated life coaches – or, not to be omitted, Aubrey de Grey, the scientific crusader against death who made us see aging as an engineering problem.

The wonderful TED platform also gave us deeper access to some of the superamazing minds we had discovered elsewhere – from Richard Dawkins, Douglas Adams and Tim Berners-Lee to Nick Bostrom, Vint Cerf, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Alain de Botton …the list goes on and on.

Having gained so much from TED over the years, we are now delighted to have a chance to give back and support further spreading of Ideas Worth Spreading – by partnering with the upcoming TEDxVilnius 2016 conference!

Also Metasite will be covering the ticket cost for every Metasite team member who attends the event.

The nearest TEDxVilnius event will be held on April 2, 2016 at the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre – which, coincidentally, is less than 50 meters away from Metasite office.

Head to TEDxVilnius site to learn everything there is to learn about this fantastic event. See you there!
