Comments: TED is no longer a responsible curator of ideas “worth spreading.” Instead it has become something ludicrous, and a little sinister.
It was inevitable.

Must say I've enjoyed some TED videos. That said, I have seen a few that are a lot like the books mentioned. Like everything else in life - not all ideas are equal. Some thinking and discrimination is required. I'll still keep watching the vids and do my own thinking.

That world of TED progression sounds like it was lifted straight from Alice's Restaurant. The only thing they missed was "and then it becomes a movement". I hope they thanked Arlo for the inspiration..

A lot of educated Indians - probably because of a residual religious (Buddhist) influence - worship the abstract. Sometimes it works out, if the guy is really, really smart, but usually it results in meaningless guff. As in this case.
