Does the TED Cred model perpetuate a breakdown in dialogue?
Perhaps I am wrong in my understanding, but the current model for assigning credits seems to value starting interesting conversations more than it does offering insightful contributions to conversations already in play.
In trying to understand the role TED can play in working toward solutions, this model seems to value each of us throwing out a constant stream of new ideas of our own rather than actually listening to and learning from the interaction of other people's ideas?
Doesn't modern society already have too many people talking and not enough people listening?
