Why do you come to TED conversations?

I have a secret to confess.

I have become increasingly addicted to TED talks. And only very recently have I discovered TED conversations, it's great.

Then I started reflecting- why do I do this? To get inspiration? To express my opinions or get comfort from recognition? To help people?
I hope my true intention is to want to learn new things.

So I'm curious and want to throw the question to the floor- Why do YOU leave comments at conversations?

  • Oct 11 2013: I was shown a talk by my therapist, and my "HW".
    Was to check it out maybe even sign up, the purpose was too seek help in the form of others life experience etc.
    I thought it was stupid and a waste of time, so I put it off for a month. Then when I finally got around to it, and have checked it everyday sense! Can't get enough!

    I also like the higher quality of conversation (more intellectual) usually when I'm bored or need to kill a few minutes I would check the Facebook feed or twitter or Instagram, but now I just go straight to Ted which is nice cause it's good in many ways
