  • Apr 26 2013: Thank you Fritzie for great insights taken in tonight for a time to digest and readdress tomorrow.
    As I do intend to do this I cannot resist first recognizing that in an "action science" sense it would be unfortunate. There seems to be more intelligence compressed here @ Ted than most other places so as in an open forum it is attractive. It would however be a shame if indeed it turns out to be simply a spot where we all spin in place, one gargantuan ego playing in league with another of similar size bantering on infinitely blah blah blah and so on.
    A very goodnight!.

      Apr 26 2013: I don't think it is at all "a spot where we all spin in place." Many TEDsters are actively engaged in projects that are meaningful to them. What they do not do, necessarily, is to drop those meaningful efforts when another option and its champion come to town.

      This is another idea that is worth considering from an angle other than your specific interest. If people don't jump to follow any particular leader, you cannot logically conclude they are not engaged in meaningful projects and are just bantering infinitely. They may simply consider their projects a higher priority for their efforts than your project is to them.
