Chris Anderson asked a great question about the criteria for standing up for a TED talk. What should it be?

The conventions have been inconsistent. Chris suggested it should be remarkable. He also reinforced that remarkable should mean different things to different people. That said, let's discuss. I'll try to get the conversation started by injecting my two cents. I believe the dominant factors should include the human impact of the individual and the effort. What else do you value: educational, moving and inspiring, self sacrifice, creative, hilarious, surprising, sends shivers down your spine, or other forms of brilliance??
