Should anyone be able to upload their TEDTalk to TED.com?
Not sure about the VIP thing, but the site should definitely accept recommendations. Uploaded videos could be quickly reviewed by volunteers and further validated before being accepted for viewing for the general public to see. The same way TEDx is differentiated from TED events, these videos could be made available with clear distinction that they are not curated by the site but approved by WebTEDsters.

We spend 3 billion hours a week as a planet playing videogames. Is it worth it? How could it be MORE worth it?
I love games. Actually, I tried to course my life to end up into the game industry. I still get to play a lot, and I still enjoy it... but sometimes is really hard to explain to others your experiences about gaming in general. I would like non-gamers to know more than everything that there are LOTS of games, more than the ones that made them decide at some point in their lives that games are boring, violent, hard, complex, ugly or just plain uninteresting... I completely confident that if you individually guide non-gamers into the experience, they will find something they like and enjoy. So that's it, be patient with your non-gamer friends and family, and if you have the time, think about their lives experiences and point them in the right direction.
