Ideas worth spreading, what is the depth and scope of spreading a specific idea?

When I watch a speech, the idea in this speech has been spreaded to me.

But, to what degree that I can understand this speech? Are there common misunderstanding about an idea? What are some debates on this idea? How can I transform the inspired ideas into something relevant to me?

I am sure that some functions of TED are helpful. Still, I am wondering how TED can do a better job.

For any speech, there must be people who come from the same field, they might be clearer about the assumpiton and background of the topic, compared to outsiders. I certainly hope to see their comments in a specific place, with some structures.

It would be also interesting to see how one has benefited from a talk. For example, I have a lot to say on the topic of data-visualization.

    To me, my structure is in the power of our hearts to care and the power of our minds to understand forging to expound our ideals of hope, trust and care in a system of freedom, justice and truth.
