    Sep 13 2012: before sharing my idea, i want to ask a few question. how to follow the latest idea? is TED a good way to have a discussion with others? if TED disappear, will we feel regretful?

    apparently, modern technology, such as internet, do have a positive impact on our life.

    although, cell phones, TV and internet has brought us some trouble. these things not only make us lack communication in reality society,but also disturb our mind.everyday we come into contact with variety of information,we don't know wether it is right or wrong, ture or fault. we absorb all of it without select,especially for kids.thus,what to do or who am i become a strict question for us.

    however,as i mention, the most important things is not limitation but selection. if we can choose the information we need, we will make full use of mordern technology. TED is a good example.here are the newest idea and great platform to share ideas.we choose the idea we want and aren't worry about the sophisticated matters.then we get back to our mental peace.
