Scenes from TEDIndia setup


Onsite at the Infosys campus in Mysore: The TEDIndia war room is live, and staff from around the world are here pulling together details before Tuesday’s events begin. TEDIndia co-hosts Chris Anderson and Lakshmi Pratury are in conference in one corner; employee volunteers from Infosys are sitting at a long table in another corner building badges;’s media production team is wiring up a mobile production unit for capturing talks as they happen.

Outside, maybe the most spectacular feature is the Simulcast lounge, which crews are building from scratch atop a basketball court. Pictures from the site last week showed a thin metal skeleton; today, it’s built and almost ready for the carpeting to go in. The photo above comes from the facade of this brand-new building. More onsite pics and reports coming soon.
