Gates, TED, and Edu-Propaganda, Part 2

Clay Burrell, Change.org, Feb 21, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Bill Gates talk, writes Clay Burrell, "is viral, and Kristof at the NYTimes given it a tailwind. The truth will never catch up." That's part of why it's a bad idea to promote TED videos, which have everything to do with splashy publicity and millionaire attendees and nothing to do with what responsibility or even evidence. In truth, the Gates talk has been roundly criticized but will most likely be cited by devotees.
