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 12 2013: interesting. "the topics of conversations which I find compelling are fewer and farther between".

      perhaps that's a sign that you've learnt a lot and running out of topics you haven't given it a serious thought on. what do you think?

      Oct 23 2013: Hey Chris, Jimmy:

      Where you guys around in the original era with “the kurgan in disguise”?
      I really miss him around, he had great (though impolite) points of view, honest, straight, different,,,, interesting, made me rethink my perspectives…
      He was banned (after a record of ~-500 TED points!), and big arguments with moderators…

      The rest comes with popularization, and it’s a great thing to have TED expanding and talks being watched by millions, but conversation is impacted…
      I understand the moderators role (they don’t want this to be youtube) but that has a cost.

      Cheers!

          I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers him!

          Cheers!

          I'll drink a glass of wine in his honor as well!

          Cheers!
