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 17 2011: I think TED have its extraordinary style, even talks from partners or TEDx events, and TED's style is the best way to explain why people are 'addicted' to TEDTalks.

    so, talks on TED.com should be curated by TED staff. But TED staff should find more interesting TED-like talks.
