My TED story

I'm a teen user who has just found this site. I just find it wonderful that there is a place like this where ideas, creativity and intelligence are celebrated and where there is a community so ready to discuss the wonders of our world and how we will solve our problems.

Are there any teens on this site?
This story sounds horribly familiar for me. I am 17, I'm half way through summer and I already feel I've wasted far too much time on Facebook or Youtube. I suppose we are just looking for something to do that will kill time and requires no effort. Given the chance to do anything we choose to do not very much at all. Its almost quite sad that in the summer in which I have time to make plans and do things, I'm sat in front of my computer screen looking at teenage melodrama unfolding live on Facebook. So you can imagine my relief at finding TED. The kind of place where people come together to share ideas and knowledge, not just cheap laughs or drama in comments. Where intelligence is celebrated and its users all seem to have a genuine interest in their world. I couldn't agree more with Dejay: This has reaffirmed my faith in humanity. We are the future of world and if there are more like i see in these conversation, people with a passion for knowledge and learning, then the future is indeed bright. People of TED I salute you.
