As I have mentioned for five days in a row now, TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The conference was held in Long Beach this week. I blogged about Autodesk's participation every day.

Actor Keanu Reeves got his big break in a movie entitled Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. With this in mind, there's another conference that Autodesk is participating in called BIL. The idea for the BIL conference originated in November 2007, when students proposed the idea of going out to Monterey, CA and crashing the TED Conference. The idea was to simply get a group of people to make the pilgrimage and hang around the areas where the TED attendees would be schmoozing at night. As the group quickly snowballed from a handful of people to nearly thirty in a matter of weeks, the decision to hold its own unconference emerged. source
Autodesk is happy to participate in this most excellent event. This year BIL takes place on March 3 and 4. Participating in events like TED and BIL is a team effort with lots of work by those who attend and many behind the scenes. Believe me, it's no picnic. OK, maybe at the very end, it's a picnic. Thanks team! Another year will soon pass so we can once again hear "It's time for TED."
BIL is alive at TED.
