TED should select "normal people" to attend its primary annual event, i.e. people selected on merit.
HI Stephen! We totally agree here at TED and created the TED Fellows program for the very same reasons you mention above. Check it out here: www.ted.com/fellows. For each conference (TED & TEDGlobal) we select 20 Fellows -- extraordinary people doing insanely cool things around the world who wouldn't otherwise have access -- to join us, all expenses paid. In addition to becoming full conference participants, the Fellows arrive two days early for a Fellows only pre-conference full of skill-building workshops, presentations, and social activities. Applications are currently open for the 2011 TEDGlobal class - apply here: www.ted.com/fellows/apply or help us spread the word!
