When kids rule the world, it will be a fantastic place. But perhaps not always professional.

The TEDx conference at The Country School where I spoke last week was interesting in that it was run by students to a great degree.

Kids greeted me at the door. Kids organized the ancillary activities taking place in between talks. Kids assisted me with my tech. There were kids onstage reading poetry. The host of the conference was a kid.

Given that my talk was on the importance of expecting more from kids, I loved the high level of student involvement in the conference.

There was no better sign that kids were running the conference than the "reserved" sign that was placed on my seat by one of the student organizers. 

Simple. Effective. But definitely designed by a kid.
