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: My hope would be a format that would not separate us based on how much we can afford to spend. You can only be active on a limited basis if you can't afford to go.
      You make a good point Mike! Thanks for your comment and adding to the conversation!
