If so many people watch the TED videos, why so few comment?
Part of the reason could be that the site is designed to watch videos and not to take part in a conversation. I never even thought of comments until I happened to spy this post on the web page. One would have to explicitly want to comment and look around for the comments section on the page, it's not a natural part of the user experience. Add to that, a lot of the views are from embedded videos in other sites(which don't enable commenting). And also the iPhone app doesn't even let you comment.

Ali Carr-Chellman: Gaming to re-engage boys in learning
I personally am relieved that boys are not doing well in school. The education system is outdated and does not prepare us for real world challenges(global warming anyone?). The fact that they are not doing well is a sign that the children have moved on. Of course, the down side is the psychological effect of being constantly told you are not good enough.
