On the heels of my review of the Flickr app and Instagram’s problematic privacy issues, this Onion video nails it.

    What’s great about this video is how it reveals how irritating, glib, and easily parodied the TED Talks format is. The overall tone is so “We’re not just telling you about our ideas, we’re telling you about our smart ideas for smart people. Doesn’t this special information make you feel special!” -when, in fact, the whole thing is just a big circle jerk for the participants and any of those 15 minutes lectures could be condensed into an article that takes five minutes to actually read. I usually find NPR shows insufferable for about the same reasons.
