Against TED talks

<< < (3/14) > >>

I'm sure TED instils a feeling of inadequacy in many people. It does me sometimes.  :-[

But if that inspires or motivates more people (like me!) to start thinking and doing, that can hardly be a bad thing.  :Thmbsup:

Most real lessons life teaches us aren't very pleasant. Or even comfortable to learn.  :tellme:

I often come away from TED thinking, "Wow! Why not me?"  :-\

And that's an important question only I can answer: Yeah...why not me?  8)


BTW, I actually did go over and talk to that little red-haired girl  :-* back when I was a freshman in high school.
It worked out well. We've been together ever since. :Thmbsup: )

It's fixed now.  :P ;D

But, like the UN, I still think (in the absence of anything better to take its place) it's important that a gathering like TED continue to be around.

Probably a bad comparison. The world would be a better place without the UN. Maybe a better comparison would be "Windows", though Windows 8 makes that pretty sketchy.

with apologies for lowering the tone :-[ (NSFW)

in my defence, it was the "Against" in the title that stuck in my head - I knew it reminded me of something....
