Link: Award to Artist Who Gives Slums a Human Face (TED Prize)

“One of my concerns at first was that he wasn’t going to be accessible or available, which could be off-putting when you’re trying to get partners to get excited about a project,” she added. And, in fact, the first time prize officials had a Skype conversation with the artist, he appeared in sunglasses with a hat pulled low over his forehead.“

But then he said, ‘You know, I trust you guys,’ and he took them off,” Ms. Novogratz said, “and we just had a regular old conversation.”

Fascinating, but a weird decision. We’ll see how this plays out come March. I wonder how successful previous TED winners projects have been, statistics anyone?
