In case you have sworn off Twitter and the national tech media, the esteemed TED conference took place in Long Beach, California last week. The event features 18-minute speeches from former presidents, CEOs, academics and other hand-selected thought-leaders. The attendees are also cherry picked requiring an invitation and a $6,000 ticket.

Normally, the guest list of the yearly conference remains secret, however the fellas over at Valleywag have gotten their hands on the entire guest list. After some extensive searching and find a replace magic, we found everyone from Philly who was deemed worthy enough to attend the event.

  • Josh Kopelman of First Round Capital is on the list and was tweeting about the event all last week.
  • Neil Izenberg, CEO of Wilmington-based Kids Health was invited and we are reasonably sure that he spoke at “Ted U,” the event’s kick off speech series, about “Why babies are cute”.

… and that’s it. Though we certainly we could have missed some folks, so feel free to scan the list yourself.
