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?

      At the bottom of every page, there is the word "contact", which is one option.

      We can contact TED Conversations. conversations@ted.com

      In response to your question...."how does one get personal e-mails on a public site".
      In our profile, we have the option to receive e-mails from other participants, which I notice you have in your profile:>) above the area where a picture might go on your profile, it says "send Carolyn an e-mail".....see it?

      If a topic you present is rejected by TED, you can reply to the e-mail rejecting the topic and ask why.....can't you?

      I am technically challenged as well Carolyn, and thankfully, I have a daughter who guides me with the process. Good luck as you expand your exploration:>)

      So let's say you wanted to send a personal email to Colleen. You click on her name, or her photo to the left and then her name, and you will see her profile.

      If you look to the right at the top of the profile, you will see a red link, unless she has requested it not be displayed there, that says "send an email to ..."

      You click on that link and can send a personal email to that person.

      That sending is secure in the sense that you will not see any private email address for her or she for you.
