Edge.org: What Should We Be Worried About?, 2013

I assert that this is interesting.

There's a fair bit of bullshit in it--it's got that TED-y feel to it. That is, there's too much emphasis on celebrity, on glibness, on flashy pronouncements, and on blending the glitzy with the serious. It's more like entertainment with a serious edge than like something serious with an entertaining flair...

Still, I think there's a place for this kind of thing. It introduced me to some controversies I didn't know about...and it gave me some new things to worry about... So that's good...
