    A comment on Talk: Steven Addis: A father-daughter bond, one photo at a time

    Dec 19 2012: A family in China has the similar ritual for 30 years. Zhao Mengmeng shared her 30 pictures with her father taken on the Father's Day each year on Weibo. They went viral and were amazing.
  • A comment on Conversation: Mundane question on TED podcasts in iTunes (turning into a mess)

    Mar 16 2012: Stephane, if you like TEDTalks in general, you just need to subscribe to the main (i.e. chronological) podcast (SD or HD). If you like TEDTalks in just a few topic areas, you can subscribe to only the curated podcasts in those areas. That way you can reduce duplicate talks in your account.

    iTunes does allow sorting by release date. You can click on the triangle icon beside "Release Date" to sort. You may also want to change "Settings" to keep only unplayed episodes/talks to reduce clutter. The "Settings" button is at the bottom of the Library --> Podcasts screen.

    I hope this helps.
