I guess until I start the next Google or YouTube, or win the Lotto, TED is going to be out of my price range, but a boy can dream, can't he?
I'm just happy that they've opted to open a window to the rest of the world by sharing select sessions for free. I've watch nearly every one of the posts and it has rarely left me feeling anything less than amazed and energized. It's actually a great example of (one of) the possibilities the Web offers in terms of knowledge/idea sharing.
To get a better feel for what it's all about, you can watch this news story (by David Pogue, of the NYT, for CBS).
