Kid unveils innovation machine at TED

Here’s a story I wrote on 21-year-old entrepreneur, Ben Kaufman, who got a couple extra doses of chutzpa somewhere along the line. He has developed a social network called Kluster, designed to hatch ideas and products. The thing I like about the story: He talked his way into the TED conference next week. This way, if things work out, he’ll get 1,000 of the world’s leading luminaries to work for him and beta test his project for free.

UPDATE: I got a note from TED saying that while Kaufman talked his way into a bigger room, he’s still paying for his sponsorship.
