I am thrilled about participating in TEDx Transmedia. I’ll be the final speaker there at the end of the day. They have a stellar lineup of speakers, all exploring the future potential for media. It’s happening in Rome on September 28.

The road begins in the ancient fortified village of Castellane that guards a narrow mountain pass. At La-Palud-sur-Verdon, climbers gather to scale the vertiginous heights. And the road ends at Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, a breathtakingly beautiful medieval town perched on a mountainside, where paragliders sail silently from the mountain face hundreds of meters above. The local Provencal farmhouses have been turned into upscale villas and fancy resorts.
