Purging bad science from TEDx

Postby Lambkin » Fri Dec 07, 2012 9:45 pm

TEDx talks are locally-organized events based on the TED model. There has been some discussion of how these talks are exploited by scammers and purveyors of pseudo-science. TED staff produced this guide for identifying pseudo-science which I thought was a good topic for Quatloos.

That's not quite fair. I was mentioned by Alex Jones (as attempting to mischaracterize him on Wikipedia.) :roll:
