Ted

Have any of you heard of Ted?

My neighbor is hosting a Ted girls' night, and invited me. She has DVDs of some talks, and we're going to watch them and then discuss them.

I can't help wondering if this is some sort of brain washing-cult thing. The graphics on the website don't make me feel any more comfortable. And the fact that it costs $6,000 to attend one of their conferences makes me super wary.

I guess I'm just really hesitant to join groups. Am I the only one?

On another subject, I have a new nephew! He was born this morning at around 10am and weighs 8lbs 5 oz. (that's a big baby for my sister-in-law to carry. She's only 4'-11") That's really all I know about him. Hopefully he'll have a name before too long!

Yes, I've heard of it. And there was a documentary on Showtime the other night. A friend turned me onto it previously. It is interesting, there are some very cool speakers. I would love to hear more.

My only concern is this: is it all talk or will any of the ideas be put into action. Because if they are, then maybe there is hope for this world afterall.

I don't know if it is all cultish or not. I'd be interested in learning more.

Congratulations on the new family member!

And yes, that website is creepy.

I once got duped into attending "The Forum" by a friend. They tried to stop me from leaving the lecture. I told them to try to stop me and bolted out the door.
