What makes "education" TED's most popular topic?

Is the TED community imposing their beliefs upon the website visitors? Are users applying the "education" tag to their conversations in the most visited section for exposure? How do you prefer to be "educated"? What is the best way to acquire, retain, and recall information? Do we need degrees, certificates, or peer validation to be effective teachers?

      Dec 11 2013: I've taken some of the lessons on ed.ted.com I'm finding that multimedia is sometimes more cumbersome when searching for interesting bits of information then through books. I can flip through thousands of pages in a matter of seconds and discover something facinating.
