You guys, I've found it! I've found the blog post that is the most awful (unintentional) indictment of TED's awful pseud groupthink!
My favorite part is “random connections drive innovation”, the most TED-like (read: meaningless) phrase ever thought by a human being ever, but the blog post I’ve linked is filled with gems like the aforementioned. Never has words meant so little. Actually, I’m pretty sure I don’t know what words mean anymore after reading the post.
““The question is how we can access the collective intelligence in the room as well as create a space for that shared interest and intelligence to continue to engage.” Huh? You have a room! The “space” has been created?
