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 22 2013: If Conversation related to beauty and religion could be started then why the conversation related to dream or love could not be started ?

      Oct 22 2013: There are many conversations about dreams and about love! If you put forward a conversation on one of these topics that was turned down and you do not understand the message someone from TED probably sent you explaining why, please ask for further clarification or help making it into a suitable topic. If you don't follow up with him or her, the staffer who replied to you will not know that you don't yet understand how to pose your question better. The staff will help you.

          Oct 22 2013: I have not asked for help myself on a question, but I am sure I have read here of people who HAVE gotten help shaping their questions. I have forgotten now the name of the singer whose talk was the first one posted from TED 2013 that was about being willing to ask for help.

          I am going to look. Here it is: http://www.ted.com/talks/amanda_palmer_the_art_of_asking.html
