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 18 2011: I think it's a good idea. But the "official" talks should not be mixed up with user-created content, in order to keep the good quality of the talks. And some kind of filtering would definetely be needed.
