This is about 6 years old, but it's a good one - very entertaining and strangely relevant these days.

stuff like this is inspiring....


Over 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than two percent chance of survival. How could this be?
Jack Andraka talks about how he developed a promising early detection test for pancreatic cancer that's super cheap, effective and non-invasive — all before his 16th birthday.

That article has essentially nothing to do with TED Talks other than two nominal references to it, and those references seem to have nothing to do with them "lying" or even being remotely deceptive.  Interesting piece, but I figure that what is now called the "creative class" has been screwed at least since the early 1980s.

I'd go a step further and condemn the idea of a "creative class."

Creativity exists everywhere, in every profession, in every discipline. Sometimes it doesn't get allowed to express itself but it's always there.

Further yet: what we think of as creativity is really a combination of creation and execution. A brilliant idea goes nowhere unless it is expressed and reduced to practice. The world's bus seats and street corners are full of creative geniuses who never got past muttering about how their brilliant ideas aren't appreciated.

I've watched enough TED talks that did nothing but congratulate their audiences for being clever enough to get the speaker's drift to share some of this cynicism, but that's the nature of ideas. You have to sift thru mountains of impractical or silly or pointless concepts to get to the stuff that will really improve our lives. I'll make that effort.

I just wish the TED stage was equipped with a gong to dismiss the hucksters and intellectual con men who use it so often.

 
possibly TED is a victim of its own success. now we are getting too much dross, but hell, I still think the platform is pretty awesome. I measure everyone who speaks there on the excruciatingly strict benchmark of my own performance and have to admit, man, they are all pretty inspiring people who get up there. My singing is getting better though.

Yes; it comes across as a vague, patronizing term, aside from that, people who work in "creative" fields (whom I was referring to) do not really constitute a "class".  A gong would be an excellent idea for the TED Show.
