TED chaged my life! Has it changed yours? How?

It's awesome how this platform can change the way you approach to knowlegde, to the world, to people, including to life itself. I want to know if you feel the same as me and how you experience it. I think TED has broaden my mind and has made my ideas to connect better than ever before. There's a me before and TED and one during TED, I don't think there will be an after-TED-me, because I won't ever stop being engaged to TED.

    Jul 2 2012: TED has definitely changed my life for the better. I'm a thinker and as a thinker it's frustrating to go out day in and day out, without sharing my thoughts with others.

    I found TED at a point in my life where I felt completely and utterly alone with my thoughts. I felt like everyone around me only cared about drinking and discussing things that mattered not.

    With TED, I can grow in my love of learning with it's TED-ed and it's TED talks. I can share my ideas and learn from others ideas with TED's conversations. I can meet people from around the world who are actively trying to do good in the world with TED Community.

    Ever since I've joined TED I have been less angry at the world. Less pessimistic that I'll find people that will challenge me in my thinking. I'm just happier to have this network behind me. A network of thinkers, of students and mostly importantly of the world. Not only America but literally the world!

    This organization has made me feel less alone...and anything that can do that in my eyes. Is something that should be kept around.

    Jun 27 2012: TED hasn't changed me yet. But it's helping me to be a 'better' me, and setting me up for the changes to come.

    Jun 27 2012: TED hasn't changed my life in any fundamental way. My participation is a reflection of things I value rather than an involvement that alters my course.
