As a TEDx organizers I wish there were this feature on ted.com/tedx. Please propose a suggestion or an idea around future functionality.

We are working on a road map for future functionally on ted.com/tedx. We would like input from the community of TEDx organizers. What would you like to be able to do on ted.com/tedx?

    Jun 12 2012: It would be great if there was a way to talk about/share sponsors. I find the real inhibitor to doing the very best TEDx event
    is, sadly, funding. The quality of the filming, the meals, the little gift bags, the name badges and notebooks. Everyone can help some but this economy, in small communities, makes it awkward to ask some folks -- often the very folks you want/need involved--- to completely donate their services. And if TEDx is but one thing you are involved in, in the non-profit world and fundraising for, it gives one a split personality trying to make Sophie's Choice-style decisions on which of the children you feel forced to give up when you dearly love them both.

    Money, is the the dirty little secret we tip-toe around as individual organizers and we need to discuss this, together.In a safe environment.
