Are you familiar with TED?

Sure. I have watched a number of awesome TED videos.

Do you have a profile on TED.com?

No, but it sounds like a good suggestion!

Have you been to a TED Conference?

I wish I had been able to attend.

Have you been to a TEDx Event?

Not yet.

What's your idea worth spreading?

I'm trying to develop a startup which promises to better resolve the big controversies facing humanity. There simply has never been an effective way to bring together leading experts and enable them to effectively challenge each other in a profound way capable of leading to rational and just action--until now. Imagine that our democracy allowed slavery so long after the stirring works of Common Sense and the Declaration of Independence! Live debates are fundamentally superficial. That is one reason poor thinking and big lies can move forward. We live in an age of nanotechnology and yet the quality of traditional point-counterpoint live debates is poor. Polls show shocking levels of ignorance about basic science, history, & etc. We are still far from an enlightened democracy. I am looking for partners and associates who can help make this happen!

Introduction

I am an former electronic engineer trying to help our still pre-civilized world with a new type of web based debate powerful enough to expose falsehood and great to watch. Socrates would like it.
