I'd love to have access to TED Talks right within DuckDuckGo but I'm not sure what kind of keywords would trigger the plugin. Probably typing TED2006 would produce a list of videos or searching for a person whose name is in the list could trigger the plugin.

I started working on it but it is still incomplete:https://github.com/jagtalon/zeroclickinfo-fathead/tree/master/ted

There are probably a few different triggers that I can think of:

Topic: TED education OR TED physics
Speaker: TED Ariely
Generic: TED videos (would show recent videos perhaps)

I almost forgot about TED topics! I should try adding related tags and themes to the plugin. Thanks!

I've been in touch with TED, they're happy for an Instant Answer to be developed using their API :) see the email below. I will get to work on the Instant Answer this week.

Hello Des,

Thanks for your interest in developing with the TED API! As long as you follow DuckDuckGo’s
requirements for use, we are happy to have you develop an Instant Answer plug in for TED queries.

If you end up hitting our rate limits for the base level API please let us know and we will review your
app for a possible API key upgrade.

Warm regards,

Could probably use http://developer.ted.com/ instead

So I started creating a spice instant answer and I asked it to search for 'TED poverty', but Zanran.pm already has a trigger 'any' for poverty.

How do I tell spice to give my instant answer priority if it contains both TED and poverty?
