To find out how many others have an idea worthy of consideration for the $1,000,000 TED ideas prize but don't fulfill the TED criteria!

I have a great idea for the how to change the world, here is a million dollars from the people at TED prize to go and do it! I started to read thru the required entrant pages and quickly realised that I soooo would not even get a look in based on the entrant criteria. Not only that, a look/review of previous winners, has as one, someone like BONO! OMG, how can ordinary folk even get a look in, especially when you have TED questions, such as what awards have you won etc. To me people like BONO have waaaay enough millions to kick start whatever they want!
As such, I wanted via this TED question post, to establish a rank and file repository of brilliant ideas/concepts/entrepeneurial opportunities, so that not only the TED people but any other philanthrapist/angel investor type/organisations can have an opportunity to perhaps invest in some alternatives. In big business, I got to tell you 1 million dollars ain't really that much.
So fellow activists, post away, my goal here is to tap into a whole area of brilliance and golden opportunity that would otherwise be overlooked. This is the classic needle in a haystack or diamond in the rough opportunity to make good on what you can bring to the fore, so make the most of it! :D

    Jun 17 2013: Not sure whether, this post is hard to find, or there are simply not enough community members who feel that they have an idea for submission to win the TED Prize ?

    I think the concept is brilliant in terms of trying to encourage ideas/concepts that will (positively) change the world.

    Another consideration, then also perhaps is that, others who also may have wanted to enter were like me simarly discouraged when they read the entrant criteria and so just simply didn't bother! (Sort of the reason I put this whole post up !)
