TED X Portland

Last weekend I was one of thousands that excitedly filled Keller Auditorium for the inspirational TEDx Portland conference. According to TEDx Portland organizers, Saturday's attendance was just under 3,000 - triple last year's turnout. Fourteen speakers and three performers took center stage from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a Happy Hour opening up onto Keller Fountain Park afterward.

Between a first-class set — complete with a 3D honeycomb display — consistently top-trending Twitter hashtags, and a popular rumor TEDx'ers temporarily brought down Instagram, Saturday's event was one for the books. Here are some of my biggest takeaways from TEDx Portland 2014.
