Conferencing for change
10 a.m., TEDx Sacramento
TED talks are a little bit like kale—trendy, and no matter what it's dressed up with, they're probably good for you. The theme of this year's local TEDxSacramento is “This Changes Everything” and will feature numerous speakers, including big-shot business leader Judy Robinett, “bionic pancreas” developer and diabetes researcher Edward Damiano and Sirolli Institute founder and community organizer Ernesto Sirolli. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, June 12, tickets start at $45.
