ArcadianRefugee: The TED talks lost all credibility when they had this jackwagon speak:
bunner: For a medium that is supposed to liberate us from silly, unfounded "absolutes", the internet culture seems to shake a new one out of its sleeves every three days, based upon hit count and viral ubiquity.
theorellior: Maybe in 2004 they were cutting-edge shiat, but these days they're just a way for the 1%ers to pretend they're being deep and thoughtful and paradigm-breaking.
PanicMan: Evil? Really. That's the word you went with.
theorellior: As a rule, you should steer clear of any franchise that regularly involves Deepak Chopra being insightful.

QU!RK1019: I've only watched a couple TED talks, and maybe I just had some bad luck, but I felt they were pretty lame.
gfid: Someone should do a TED talk on how to be selective about what you watch, listen to or read.A whole lot of people could then stop whining about things they don't like.
jonny_q: Every good Ted talk I ever saw was something that would have been interesting if it was about 4 times longer. There are some that are shiat. The rest are only long enough to get you interested.I love to listen to a good speaker talk for a good solid hour. I don't care if it's a stand up comic or Neil deGrasse Tyson. Ted talks are too short to be useful in the event they happen to be good.
IntertubeUser: If I'm doing something, and want to learn shiat, what's a good alternative to TED talks that isn't mind-rotting bullshiat garbage?
WhyteRaven74: Here's the thing if you never get to hear a differing view, you never get to figure out just what makes your own position stand up or not.
spamdog: You know what I hate the most about TED?That farking Gary Wilson and his anti-masturbation pseudoscience.It's just a repackaging of puritanism, and there's thousands of his acolytes out there who are taking part in "no fap" in the hopes it will make them alpha. I hope he dies.
