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

Topics: ideas innovation

    Feb 15 2011: NO: In this age, we have so much information around us, and non-curated/controled places are a mess to find out good sources. TED, at least, its clean and you can find very good sources about almost all topics without breaking your head in the process of searching.

    Also, not all ideas are "worth spreading" i guess. IE: Political/religious agenda, racism, etc. So TED should have a quality control (as it does now)
