would be great to see more technology and educational content, not big into design personally, but to each other own. instead we get another dose of the focus of the culture; hate and signaling your "virtue". Not sure how false narratives told with anger and passion makes them true. Like the "hands up don't shoot" Proven not to have happened in court but here we are, using it as a stepping stone to leverage hate and bitterness. I will listen less to TED because more and more episodes like this one, don't cause deep contemplation, just a frustration. Makes me so sad knowing there are people like that who thrive on animosity and anger.
