The problem with TED talks is that they are not truly "field specific, scientific" presentations. They are normally pretty generalized and don't go very deep into the technical matter. This is because they are presentations for people not specifically in the field themselves. If you want to judge the merit of the technology itself, you'll have to take a look at the available research data and published research.

I keep thinking about the movie WEIRD SCIENCE.
If they got 3D printers to make bio-material some nerd
genius is going to print a buxom woman.

You missed my point. "Plebs" can give input. Their input will be limited to opinion or speculation at best. Example: what can 98% of the general public (and that's generous) possibly have to say about 3D printing bio-materials? I know my MBA and my life experience have nothing to add to the plausibility of the 3D printer. I cannot say anything about this talk except what my opinion is: that I think it's interesting and I can't wait to live forever. However, when I discuss talks like this with others to get their opinion, I will frequently get their dogma: "That will never work. It's too complicated." Let the free market decide if it will work. Let the engineers and doctors decide the complexity of the system. That was my point on TED talks and people's comments on them. I gave up discussing TED talks with people because I can't seem to find anyone who is not qualified to give a critique rather than an opinion... which is, in all probability, the most anyone is quali

That's exactly the problem. Their ideas aren't supposed to be challenged. And everything is amazing and inspirational. Perhaps too much so. And they are more dogmatic than the people you refer to.

You say that us plebs can't give any input, positive or negative, about ted talks. Even those of us with Master's degrees, like myself. This just means that nobody can talk about ted talks, or their content. We just have to accept it. Following people blindly is dumb. Believing without question is dumb. Not only do you need a Ph.D, but you have to be published to be allowed to give input, apparently.

Let me tell you, my time at Columbia University has led me to not only believe, but rather know for a fact, that so many academics are full of $hit. Absolutely. There is no question about this.

Thomas Jefferson said to "Question with Boldness, even the existence of God....". This applies to everything.

TED talks are meant to inspire. I find those who greet them undue skepticism (as opposed to healthy skepticism) are typically dogmatic; they have no basis for their skepticism. They know nothing or very little on the subject matter presented. They aren't scientists. They aren't published. They have never been peer reviewed. They may not even have advanced degrees or experience in the field yet, somehow, they can be "skeptical" on the subject matter. The biggest contribution most people are "qualified" to give is "That TED talk interested me" or "That TED talk does not interest me." As far as contributing information about the plausibility, economics, or any other non-opinionated factor, a wise person would know they are not qualified to give meaningful input.

Always skeptical of Ted Talks. But 3D printing is fascinating.. Gun Control will be totally pointless because of it.
