Has anyone else noticed something strange going on at TED lately?
Is TED, as an open, political forum in decline?
I was disturbed to see the Nick Hanauer talk about the falsehoods in right wing political rhetoric and despite a robust protest, it has still not been aired. In fact very little of a political nature has been shown on TED of late and I 'heard' the administration pulled one Tim Colgen's of conversations, despite protest.
Further, I also note the TED administration has removed our 'favourite members' lists. This has disabled us from following each other into conversations of communal interest and of course, from collaborating on an ideological level.
I feel the ugly face of censorship has reared its head. Is TED, as an open impartial forum over? Was it ever really there in the first place?
