Man, I love listening to rebroadcasts of TED talks on my iPod during my commute. Sadly, I’m not interesting enough to be invited to attend, but by becoming an associate member ($1000), I can access a live webcast of the TED conference and show it to ten of my friends.

This year I’ll be on a cruise, but it would be fun to organize a TED Boston in 2010. I could get together 10 interesting people, take a couple days off from work, watch the conference together, and chat about it.
