Should TED drop the price of attending their events?

I have been on TED for about 6 months now and I would love to attend an event, but the price seems steep to me. I know there is overhead involved with pulling these things together, but the price seems out of reach for most people. The last time I looked, a conference was $7,500 and a conference via satellite was $2,500. I'm not bashing, but is there another model that would allow more people to go to an event for less money? Any thoughts?

  • Dec 30 2012: I enjoy the talks - $7,500.00 is beyond my range - Maybe, the big supporters can start a scholarship program. I am glad TED is here.
    • Dec 30 2012: I'm glad it's here as well. I just feel like the cost is too much. I would like to enjoy all aspects of TED instead of watching from the outside.
