So what is TED exactly?

Perhaps it's the proposition that if we talk about world-changing ideas enough, then the world will change. But this is not true, and that's the second problem.

TED of course stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and I'll talk a bit about all three. I Think TED actually stands for: middlebrow megachurch infotainment.

The key rhetorical device for TED talks is a combination of epiphany and personal testimony (an "epiphimony" if you like ) through which the speaker shares a personal journey of insight and realisation, its triumphs and tribulations.

What is it that the TED audience hopes to get from this? A vicarious insight, a fleeting moment of wonder, an inkling that maybe it's all going to work out after all? A spiritual buzz?

I'm sorry but this fails to meet the challenges that we are supposedly here to confront. These are complicated and difficult and are not given to tidy just-so solutions. They don't care about anyone's experience of optimism. Given the stakes, making our best and brightest waste their time – and the audience's time – dancing like infomercial hosts is too high a price. It is cynical.

Also, it just doesn't work.

tak ted povodne vznikol tak, ze sa zavolali zaujimavi ludia a rozpravali o veciach, ktore im prisli zaujimave
teraz je to skor platforma na marketing svojich veci
a ten clovek si vlastne tiez len robi marketing svojich nazorov

ked chce opravit ted, tak nech tam proste len dojde povedat, co ho zaujalo
aj ked teda asi to neni realne, ked uz su tam vselijake ocakavania grandioznych talkov

toto je pre mna poriadny ted talk, 12 rokov stary.. uprimna vypoved, nic viac..

"Truth, curiosity, diversity, no selling, no corporate bullshit, no bandwagoning, no platforms.

Just the pursuit of interest, wherever it lies, across all the disciplines that are represented here.

That's not going to be changed at all." (yeah right :P)
