Seems like TED's mission is to spread their ideas as far and as wide as possible. Grousing about taking the venue broader (and maybe down the socioec scale) seems to be a bit elitist. The more people that can consume TED's ideas, the better off everyone is. Even if they don't get to hang in beautiful locales.

TED was a blowout this year, both in size and in ambition. While the size comparison was frequent and we all felt like we lost a bit of the charm of the old, quirkier TEDs of years past in Monterey, the scope, quality and substance of this year's TED was extraordinary. Chris and his team took a big gamble with Long Beach, but by the end of the second day, I sensed the tide turning (along with the content) to the thoughts of the grand challenges and opportunities ahead. As with all TED conferences, we were left with a grand mission, great hope for the future, and a (now larger) set of talented people and ideas with which to accomplish our collective goals.

TED this year was incredible. Congrats to Chris and his team for taking a big gamble and winning even bigger.
