Are you a TED fellow?

Apply now to be a TED Fellow at the 2010 TED conference, February 9-13, 2010, in Long Beach, California. If you don't know about TED Talks, it's time you do.

TED Fellows attend without charge and participate in a two-day pre-conference where they can present a short talk or video, attend elite skills-building courses taught by world experts, and share social opportunities and surprise extras.

The TED Fellows program is accepting fellowship applications through Sept. 25, 2009. TED Fellows may apply themselves or be nominated by another person. Follow this link to apply. To nominate a candidate, email fellows@ted.com.

I haven't attended the TED Talks yet, but I was at the EG (Entertainment Gathering), a mini TED, in Monterey last year, as a guest of David Elliot Cohen, co-creator of the photography book series A Day in the Life, and of the beautiful and poignant project, What Matters. And I did attend and photograph the TEDx Hollywood 2009 event, organized by ad man Tito Melega.

The talks from TED and EG get posted online, many of them with subtitles to many languages. And there are plenty of talks about photography. Twenty-one, as of today.
