TED India: infosys campus in mysore

the venue for the TEDIndia conference is the infosys campus in mysore, india. surrounded by poverty-stricken dirt roads and shanty-villages, it is a pinnacle of technology, design, and cleanliness. in addition to hosting the conference, the campus houses the ~15,000 infosys employees who live and work in mysore. the conference accommodations include an epcot-style geodesic dome (i'll be speaking in there tomorrow!):

the vegetation is lush and the buildings are modern.

cars are not allowed on campus, so bikes are a big presence.

for more photos of the campus (including its top-of-the-line athletic facilities) check this out. i hope to check out more of the surrounding city today on my tour of mysore. photos to come!
