Should anyone be able to upload their TEDTalk to TED.com?

YES: because there are thousands of invisible geniuses out there. Let's bring their wisdom to the world! The TED crowd will quickly vote up the good ones.

NO: it will plunge the site into an ocean of mediocrity. The best thing about TED.com is that it's curated. Every talk is good. Don't turn it into youtube

    Feb 15 2011: I am also going with No, but only if we compare the upload functionality to youtube. I think if a separate channel is setup with a sort of crowd sourced curation, it could lead to some interesting discussions and new material bubbling up.
    Still I cannot imagine these reaching the level that the curated and published TED talks currently have.
