TEDxChicago 2019

TEDxChicago 2019 was "Press Pause." With “Press Pause,” we wanted to explore how everything in our world — information, technology, communication, transportation — is moving so fast. We are on the cusp of eclipsing all of the progress that we have made to date in a fraction of that time. Is this pace good for us? Will we fall behind and fail if we take a break? Watch as our speakers dive deep into the theme to help us all “Press Pause” on our hectic daily grind.
