    Mar 20 2013: It is VERY COOL to talk with folks from everywhere.

    Some of the speakers state things that are utter rubbish, others are absolutely amazing, and have changed the way I think.

    It made me realize that on some things the participants on TED are what I would call professional and some are what I would call ignorant or socialist, the same thing really. Some have really made me think.

    I think TED is the embodiment of this lecture as by definition learning is an evaluating or weighing of ideas:

    Mar 19 2013: I can say TED changed me. If anyone says otherwise, he must admit he is close minded. When I came to this site, I started watching videos and started changing my perspective in so many things. I would like that everyone on this planet can feel what i feel when i am watching good TED talk.
