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 30 2013: Desperation.

    I often find myself quoting a favorite author (appropriately in most cases) and realize immediately that nobody finds it the slightest bit amusing. I have spent most of my life wondering if fellowship was in some way unattainable for me. I have only recently discovered that my upbringing as a polite and thoughtful person has more or less crippled me socially.

    So here I am. Hoping this isn't another forum for people to vent their frustration.

    Tongue in cheek...somewhat.
