I got this in my email this morning from TED and I thought some of you might be interested to have a look.
A TED2008 Main Hall Pass has just gone up for auction on ebay. It’s the only remaining legal way that someone can get into the event. The auction is being done with our approval, because all the proceeds will go towards the Open Architecture Network, which was created in response to TED Prize Winner Cameron Sinclair’s inspiring wish.
The single pass, which guarantees coveted access to the main theater where speakers present, includes three special extras:
– a first-day cocktail with TED super-connector Sunny Bates
– a coffee at TED with the brilliant founder of ebay Pierre Omidyar
– and a lunch with the charming, insightful and delightful Meg Ryan
TED2008 has been sold out for more than a year, so we suspect this is going to make someone very happy indeed. It won’t be cheap, but the successful bidder will be making a philanthropic contribution to an organization that’s empowering architects and designers to change the world.
TED2008 is Feb 27-March 1, in Monterey, California on the theme “The Big Questions”.
Here‘s the ebay listing. Please feel free to forward this message to anyone you think might be interested!
At the time of writing the current bid for the pass is US $32,100.00
Think you can out bid them? How much are you willing to pay?
