TED Pass Going for Big Bucks on Ebay

The TED conference happens next month. Since it's an invite-only event, most of us won't be going. But somebody is putting his VIP pass up on ebay. Current price? More than $33,000.

It's not just a pass to the conference. You also get to have lunch with Meg Ryan.

My favorite part? You have to sign a waiver agreeing not to be annoying and try to sell your products and/or services to other TED attendees.

By the way, the ticket is being sold with the blessing of TED. The proceeds go to charity.

I'm curious to see what gets announced at the TED conference this year, but not to the tune of more money than my student + car loans combined!

I remember in the mid-late 90s when I first heard about the TED conference, it was from my boss, who happened to be named Ted. Silly me actually believed for a while it was an annual gathering of folks named Ted. Seriously, if I were named Ted, I'd go to an event like that.
