I have watched a lot of TED talks online, and I think that HOT and
MissingMaps are ideal topics for TED, and it would be great exposure for
the projects.

The smaller TEDx (independently organized events) should be targeted with presentations, as they are probably easier to get into.

But, for now, the communication wg is more about helping us (HOT) drive the conversation, on that same wiki-page linked above (our main one) there are also slide-share and other material for anyone looking to build a TED talk type presentation – although I don’t think anyone has actually done an actual TED talk about HOT or even OSM for that matter. But at least Kate and myself in the working group have done presentations about HOT before, so we’d be happy to help folks prepare and/or look for opportunities although the wg priorities are first just setting up some basic groundwork for communication in general.
