Greetings from the back corner of the Prince George Ballroom in New York City, where TEDx Manhattan 2011, "Changing the way we eat," is underway. An all-star roster of food activists, chefs, urban planners, designers, journalists, and other thinkers on food and food systems—including the starriest of them all, Atlantic Food Channel contributors Josh Viertel and Michel Nischan—are speaking today until about 6:00 PM. The full lineup of speakers is available here, and steaming video of the event is here.

Without further delay, here are our 140-character-max dispatches from the thick of it all:
