6th Grade Programmer - Thomas Suarez

Thomas Suarez is a 6th grade student at a middle school in the South Bay. Tom [has] been fascinated by computers and technology since before kindergarten. Recently, he's been focused on the development of applications for the iPhone, and has established his own company, CarrotCorp. His most successful [app] is one he terms "an anti-Justin-Bieber game" called "Bustin Jieber". "It's a variation on the Whac-a-Mole theme," he explains.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. [this] event is called TEDxManhattanBeach, where x = independently organized TED event. At [this] TEDxManhattanBeach event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including [this one], are self-organized.
