Thinker and Experimenter,


This conversation is closed.

The lack of a chatroom style interface is, what I think, makes TED less of a superficial network.

When there is a chat interface with instant messaging, many individuals don't think before they elaborate, but with this interface where you can edit and things aren't "instant messaging", then I think it creates more thoughtful and insightful answers/discussions. It also helps that most individuals in this blogoshpere seem educated or knowledgeable about many topics, and if not refer to speakers/talks from A-Z. ;)


Closing Statement from Dyed All Hues

The simpler the better. That is what keeps our minds sane.

Thanks for reading and responding to my post.

Ciao! =D

  • Mar 18 2012: I think the content of the site is what makes the site less superficial. I can't imagine any dumb 12 year old reading all the topics here, or at least interested in any video, and making senseless comments.

      Mar 18 2012: I'm pretty sure that most younger people may be won't be on here, but I don't want to discriminate by age. I am sure there are young people who would understand some stuff or be on the site, but I don't have the resources to really know that answer. hehe.

      Other than that, I definitely agree that not many individuals make senseless comments.
