I'm delighted to announce that Quiet Rush have offered support to TEDxCanberra by coming on board as a Partner for their 2011 event, held on 24 September 2011 at the National Library of Australia.
In the news release for this event, Stephen Collins (trib) announced: "“TEDxCanberra 2011 will be a full day of thought-provoking and highly engaging presentations by some of Australia’s brightest minds from Canberra and surrounding regions. If you are up for an experience where your mind is blown 10 different ways, come to TEDxCanberra on 24 September.”
Stephen also noted that "TEDx events bring together the world's leading thinkers and change-makers to share their insights into ideas and solutions that matter. This year’s event will showcase speakers from a range of disciplines including: social enterprise and international development, installation art, military ethics, sustainable agriculture, medical innovation and Indigenous affairs."
As an attendee and sponsor of last years TEDxCanberra via Laughing Mind, I can't speak highly enough of the event, with a high calibre range of attendees from Canberra, interstate and international locations. It was a chance to meet and connect with some of the most interesting crowd that I've ever experienced. If you're wanting to come along to this event, get in early as the tickets sell FAST.
We're going to be attending, with our Stealth Fighter eBike demonstrator to give people a taste of the Quiet Rush experience (but no demonstration rides will be occurring on the day- we're there to hear the talks).
We're glad to report that the store is now open for business! Whilst it's modest, it will at least give Australian audiences a chance to be able to order and configure their bikes online, and help start to reduce their oil dependencies. We're working on a more sophisticated online platform which will be along shortly, but for now, we're open for business. We're planning on getting to some of the NSW based small farm field days in 2011 so you can get closer to the bikes. More on that, later. In the meantime, this bog will be used to alert you to changes in our online store. We'll continue to use our current blog at http://quietrush.blogspot.com to provide a more interactive view of our experiences with the bikes. We can be tracked on twitter also via http://twitter.com/#!/QuietRush
Whilst we do our best to stay across the range of forums where we know people are talking about the bikes, we've also made available our online community to try and answer your questions directly. We're looking forward to hearing from you..and raving as much as you'll allow us to about how great we think these bikes are, for all sorts of reasons..
