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 31 2013: Interesting question. I too have become increasingly addicted to TED and I think it is the lack of interest from those around me that steered me towards the TED community. I found myself getting the "not again" look from my family as I would burst out with "I just watched the most amazing talk!!" "Do you want to hear about it"? Then I would proceed to, very passionately, deliver my own "TED Talk" regardless of their answer. Looks of "not again" quickly turned into faintly audible murmurs filled with disinterest and eventually into pleads of mercy. So I suppose I am here to spare my family (or my feelings) any displeasure.
