Just noticed this through my Twitter timeline: Tickets for the WWW.WWW Conference, the new brainchild from TED founder Richard Saul Wurman are selling for 16,000 USD. Who needs sponsors when you can milk so much money from each individual ticket? (Don’t get me wrong, I admire RSW and I wish my event’s tickets went sold out for that individual amount).
I see that tickets to TED founder RSW’s upcoming WWW conf in Sept are a mere $16,000, or TED X 2. thewwwconference.com/pages/www.html
