Unfortunately, the subject of the email is incorrect and your application was not approved.

I apologize for the confusion... It was my mistake (not Dave's) when sending this batch of emails.

Dear william wingo,
Thank you very much for applying to attend TEDxMidAtlantic.
We sincerely appreciate your interest in the event. We have received far more applications than we are able to approve due to the capacity of our venue. Unfortunately, we were not able to approve your application to attend this first event. This is not any reflection on you but is simply a product the large number of applicants we received, the extraordinary nature of the backgrounds of all of the applicants, and our desire to create a diverse, balanced event. We simply could not accommodate everyone.
The good news? We are already planning next year's event. Get your application in early, or you might even consider being part of our volunteer planning team! Being a TEDxMidAtlantic volunteer is a great way to get plugged into the community and to guarantee your spot at the event.
And there's more good news. A live stream of TEDxMidAtlantic will be available on our website. Feel free to watch the event live and share the link with others.
Even better, all TEDxMidAtlantic presentation videos will be made available online in the weeks after the event, so you can see (and share) all the talks.
So, while we are sorry you will not be able to attend this first event, we welcome you to the TEDxMidAtlantic community and look forward to seeing you at future events.
Lastly, we do intend to fill every seat at this event. If we learn in the next few days that any seats do become free, we will notify applicants on an as-available basis. Stay tuned.
Thanks again for your interest in TEDxMidAtlantic and "Ideas Worth Spreading."
Dave Troy
Curator TEDxMidAtlantic
