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 23 2013: I've been a part of TED for about 7 months now & this is my first comment. I mostly read what the TED community has to say. I was introduced to this website when I starting Googling political controversies, and informing myself of other world wide issues. And honestly ive learned quite a bit of new information, some conversations have even educated me on issues I thought I knew everything about, resulting in a positive change of opinion (on some issues) . But I really enjoy reading the different perspectives of the mature intellectuals on this site. And hopefully ill continue to learn from them. :)
