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

    Yes, but restricted only for talks presented under the umbrella of TEDx.
    I think that a social recommendation engine built around existing TED Talks has the potential of bringing similar results of spreading important ideas.

    For other brilliant talks, not on TED.com, TED community may curate a #tag like #TEDWorthy, which can be showcased on TED.com in community section.

    Best, Umang
