I hate to pull a Kirk here but this is pretty fucked up.
Ted's Cult-Style Institution Emporium
Fuck that, I still enjoy TED Talks.
I always liked ForaTV better.
Sounds like every other conference type gathering I have ever heard of, the scale is just a hell of a lot bigger. Its not like he would pay out of his pocket anyway, that is a expense Vice will foot the bill for.
Eddie Huang is a fucking moron. Last time I checked they aren't murdering people.
I wish I would get invited to TED
joe rogan is really smart but he believes in some wacky theories and have people on that do as well. I dunno if completely believe this person. I will once multiple people in TED confirm this
Ok good. I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to say so. I don't know who this guy is, but he seems like an exaggerating douche. TED is a cult because they expect you to follow their program for the week! OMG IT'S THE MANSON FAMILY ALL OVER AGAIN!
Just read a couple of stories about it (can't listen/watch the video at the moment), but what a whiny ass.
I do AV stuff sometimes and work conferences...that seems like a completely normal schedule for one.
Breakfast is usually 6:30-8ish, meetings til noon-1, lunch, more meetings, cocktail hour, dinner, etc. Usually winds up being minimally a 13 hour day. I sometimes feel bad for the people working the conferences.
He's a whiney jackass. You don't do TED "just for the love". You do it for the PRICELESS networking opportunity. Billionaires are involved in TED... literally billionaires(plural). Filthy rich movers and shakers that are just looking for that bright idea or that motivated up and comer to throw their support and their cash behind.
This clown is a fucking fool if he thinks the time he devoted to TED was some sort of charity, and not a potential investment of his time and effort that could pay off in a massive way for his benefit.
Fucking kids of the Me Me generation. Lazy, whiney, short-sighted fucks who want the trophy handed to them just just for showing up.
It's like going for a job interview, and then afterwards calling the company a cult because they didn't cut you a check for the time you spent at the interview, and they got angry when you got bored and walked out in the middle of the interview.
Well you've turned me around, sir. Tou-fuckin-che.
I doubt that assclown was literally not allowed to leave. Isn't in the whole point of going there so you can participate in all the bullshit? And what's wrong with the long days? What else are you going to do, just sit in your room?
Joe should've smashed that idiot.
Every time this thread pops up now, I get more annoyed with this assclown.
Being able to go to something like that and spend 7 days with creative, intelligent, insightful people would be fucking amazing, let alone the networking contacts you'd make...and I fucking hate networking.
This whiny fuck went there and blew it off to go do a podcast with some jagoff and a porn star.
Also, he had to have some idea what he was getting into
