I knew these existed but I can count on one hand the number I've even clicked on. They're universally 99% bullshit because it's all just a persuasion speaking gig. Not an educational lecture by any means. Popularity rules, so they just stick to popular or provocative things.

If you hear someone say they learned about something in a TED talk, their depth on that subject cannot be great.

Read and find out for yourselves. It's all humanity has... otherwise it's just old caveman word of mouth.

They very early ones were decent, and led to new lines to research yourself. Once TEDx got started, everything just turned into SJW nonsense, and it's complete crap now, even the main event.

Annoying pseudo-smart people adore TED Talks. It makes them feel bright. Most of them aren't dull, but they are more about feeling smart rather critically thinking.

I watch ted talks but I listen with a critical ear. Also I don't think I've ever said I learned anything from them. They are more just a bunch of people's ideas or theorys. I enjoy hearing how diffrent people think. Sometimes I agree with the ideas and other times not.
