VIDEO: Technology Without People is Just Very Cool Stuff

Dr. John Ohab is a new technology strategist at the Department of Defense Public Web Program.

In November 2010, the Department of Defense hosted TEDxPentagon, a first-of-its kind event held at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington, DC. Dynamic speakers from all over the world joined TEDxPentagon to share their personal experiences with the military. In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting the science and technology related videos for those who were unable to watch the event live.

In the first video, LTG Benjamin Freakley, U.S. Army Accessions Commander, discusses the modern military servicemember and the future of military recruiting.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

TEDxPentagon: "The Human Stories" took place Friday November 19.
