TED Conference Speaker Has Best Computer Fail Ever

Posted on 09 March 2012 by admin

 

From LAist.com

Imagine you are invited to give a TED talk at the big conference in Long Beach. But just as your talk on the topic of the “unexpected” gets underway, troche you’re plagued with that Apple computer “spinning beach ball of death” and your total AV package is frozen. Gulp.

That’s exactly want happened to speaker Colin Robertson, hospital whose presentation was derailed…with unexpected results.

 

 

[SPOILER ALERT]

Okay, pharm so Colin isn’t Colin, and the TED talk gone awry, if you haven’t watched the whole video yet, was actually an Improv Everywhere “scene” put on with the help of the TED organizers.

After the initial awkward phase, and the audience clearly feeling bad for the guy on the stage, the presentation started to get a little ridiculous.

Improv Everywhere explains:

The crowd started to catch on that something was not right as the error messages starting piling on top of each other. Errors from older Mac operating systems starting popping up, one accompanied by the classic “eep” sound. Then two additional spinning beach balls appeared. At this point, performers secretly placed in the crowd popped open umbrellas that looked exactly like the spinning beach ball.

 

Ultimately, the “skit” made use of rainbow wigs, streamers, and people dressed up as a human “spinning beach ball” to make the point, and the joke: The unexpected can be wonderful!

Warning: Since this video seems to have gone crazy, no rx I figure I’ll post this notice. I’m going to read a letter my 15 year old daughter wrote. There ARE some curse words in it. None of them are incredibly bad, hospital but they are definitely things a little kid shouldn’t hear… not to mention things MY KID shouldn’t say!

My daughter thought it would be funny/rebellious/cool to post on her Facebook wall just how upset she was and how unfair her life here is; how we work her too hard with chores, never pay her for chores, and just in general make her life difficult.

She chose to share this with the entire world on Facebook and block her parent’s from seeing it. Well, umm… she failed. As of the end of this video, she won’t have to worry anymore about posting inappropriate things on Facebook…

Maybe a few kids can take something away from this… If you’re so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you’re deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.
