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 27 2013: My daily dose of TED reminds me that there are people out there in the world who are doing a lot of thinking for me. TED has made my world a true universe. If I need inspiration then I can get it, if I wonder what is Happiness, I can listen to people immediately who can tell me. No appointments needed! I too need to listen to a talk before I go to bed. TV has lost it's appeal, give me TED every time. On Oct 12 Kamlesh Parajuli first said it was because he was lonely...but now he can find out What is lonliness [?] and maybe he is only Alone?
    Thanks TED for helping my brain grow.

      That's my kind of lazy thinking. Love it.
