The Two Rogers Hartmanns
Rogers Hartmann at SMU in October
Slowly but surely, videos from the TEDxSMU event, held back in October, are finding their way to the conference's site. After a slow rollout -- and I highly recommend Lewis Warren's performance, posted last month -- two went up yesterday: a talk from Dr. William Abraham, the school's Albert Cook Outler Professor of Wesley Studies; and one from Rogers Hartmann, a Hockaday grad (Class of '89), screenwriters' manager, Oprah guest and the author of the Life with Dystonia blog, which chronicles her battle with the Parkinson's-related disease and her efforts to raise awareness about it. Watch 'em both, but it could be a bit, well, early for some to really, like, get Abraham's speech, titled "In Search of a Grand Theory of Everything." This, I've found, is usually a very late-night topic of discussion.
