I think Ted Kennedy was a conflicted politician.

About TED
TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 110 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Sorry, never heard of it. So from my foxhole it's a zero.

I have seen a few I like but not enough to give a wholesale endorsement.

I have seen some that are good. Some, I'm sure, are not. Caveat emptor.

Sorry, I’ve heard of TED talks and tried to have them explained to me, but I still don’t have a clue as to what they’re supposed to be or why I should care about them. I’ve yet to see one advertised with a speaker and/or topic in which I’d have a shred of interest, much less a desire to spend my hard-earned money to attend. They all sound egotistical and self-aggrandizing to me.

I'm referring to hearing them online.

It seems to me that they are often slanted in the humanistic vein, aka "there is no God, so let's talk about everything in the world based on that". A few times there have been Catholics on, talking about death, dying, etc. and those have been good. I watch them on my Roku box sometimes, if I find one I know won't be more propaganda than information.

TED stands for 'Technology, Entertainment and Design,' and therefore it is somewhat limited.

90% or more of the ones I have watched were garbage.
