In this impactful and hilarious talk, full of “a-ha’s and ha-ha’s”, Jason Goldberg will share what he discovered due in large part to an unsupervised, sticky-fingered infant in a busy airport. What he realized helped him develop a powerful method to “hack fascination” with just three simple words that anybody can use in order to build stronger relationships, be more creative and to experience true fulfillment and joy in everyday life.

Jason Goldberg is a geek, turned comedian, speaker and entrepreneur. Throughout the course of a successful 13-year career in information technology and after leaving the corporate world to launch multiple start-ups, Jason found himself so inundated and overwhelmed by the speed and quantity of information and stimulation flying at him that he became uninspired, unengaged and unsatisfied with much of his day-to-day life. In an effort to rid himself of his boredom and apathy and to reclaim and reactivate his excitement for life, he set out to see if there was a way to engineer enthusiasm and manufacture fascination – even in situations where neither of those things were anywhere to be found.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
