    Apr 5 2013: Ex TEDWestHollywood. Need all the recognition we can get in this short time. We are 9 days out and tickets aren't on sale yet -- still getting ducks in order. Press Release going out Monday and hopefully the hot spot gets us enough attention to sell the 110 tickets we have.

    I'd appreciate it if the community of intelligent contributors would pressure TED to promote our Live Stream and leave this blog open long enough for an exchange afterwards in which TED either would be vindicated regarding its opinion of our program (although nothing vindicates the last minute cancellation) or give TED and us material with which to deal with the shortcomings of TEDs operation.
    • Apr 6 2013: Suzanne, this came to my attention today and, as the archivist of 20 years' worth of research, much of which has Targ's name on it, his letter to TED about the presentation prompted me to share some documents and information in support of his assertions. Please use it as you see fit and contact me if there is more I can do. The blog is at stargate-interaective.com/news and it titled targ tedx and the nature of legitimate research. Good luck to you.
    • Apr 6 2013: I think the discussion about the other talks isn't finished either. Time to re-open it, on a wider scope?

      However, the terms of use for TED Conversations state:

      "4. By inviting you to participate in TEDTalk comments and TED Conversations, we are seeking to build a mature online community centered around ideas that matter. Please be aware, when participating, that we will remove: content promoting pseudo-science, conspiracy theories, zealotry, proselytizing, self-promotion, product-hawking, and new-age fluff"

      Promoting pseudoscience by pressuring TED to promote pseudoscience in a TED Conversation would be a violation of the stated terms of use.
