    Jan 11 2014: hi there
    I've been following TED talks for the past 3 years. Honestly, I find them great help since
    1. they give me insight into cutting edge scientific findings
    2. they make me aware of a wide range of topics, which I could never manage to follow myself, yet essential or at least helpful in life
    3. they are so fun to watch
    4. they have made me really humble against the complexity yet systematicity of life
    5. all those true stories by people have been so so inspirational
    6. they give me a sense of belonging, to a community, a family, a group of likeminded people
