Better yet, TED's not afraid of the technical topic. You should by all means help your expert by sharing the "ten commandments of TED" with them--they're the rules that make TED talks so successful.
Here's the process: You make a one-minute video to show how you speak and any creative format you choose, and upload it to YouTube or Vimeo. Then send a link to your video along with an application. Speakers chosen from the video auditions will get to give their TED talks in front of a live audience of TED staffers and their invitees. Your one-minute video is due April 25, 2011 by 11:59 pm Eastern time. Check out the blog post for the full schedule.
And if you enter, keep us posted! You'll find useful tips on video for speakers below.
