Ideas worth spreading - You're doing it wrong!

TED is revoking the license of TEDxWestHollywood, just a couple of weeks before their event, "Brother, Can You Spare a Paradigm?" without offering a reason, beyond a vague statement suggesting that the program is not sufficiently scientific. This occurred just two weeks before the April 14 event, after over a year of preparation.
