Tyler Blackwell Posted about 2 years ago How have you benefited from TED? I've only recently been introduced to the forum and actively watching TED. I just really enjoy having some respite from other mindless blogs that invite idiotic, mundane threads and comments. That said, I appreciate the quality of the topics as well as the comments. I think it fosters a thinking environment and creates a community based on respectful, intelligent, and rational (most the time) communication. I hope to continue to be a part of such a group!
