WDS 2014 Speaker: A.J. Jacobs on Our Global Family

Next week we’ll release the first round of tickets for WDS 2015, a global gathering like no other!

But first, over the next few days we’ll be rolling out a different speaker video every day. A.J. Jacobs, the bestselling author of The Know-It-All, The Year of Living Biblically, and several other books, was our opening anchor speaker.

A.J. spoke to us about how we’re all related, and he did a great job of getting everyone ready for the rest of the weekend. Check out the video!


“Humans have a tendency to treat each other with a little more kindness when they are family as opposed to strangers.”

Want to Join Us Next Year? Here’s How Ticket Sales Work

Every year, WDS sells out far in advance of the actual event. If you’d like to come, don’t hesitate! Next year will be our five-year anniversary, and we’re planning big things.

We’ll have more great speakers, amazing parties, hundreds of meetups and breakout sessions, and an all-new world record attempt.

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, November 11 at 12pm EST. When tickets are live, you can purchase over here.

Stay tuned for more speaker videos!
