Excellent. But it seems like EP has drifted from that original vision to some extent:(
Yeah, I just watched it. I had read from the wiki earlier that he started with a disease support website. The talk is good and inspiring. There's a bit of hype that we may have to discount and he doesn't mention challenges faced in managing the dynamics of diversity, like moderation, business viability of scale etc. But I'll surely appreciate the positive aspects brought out by his talk (which form a great part).
I have always felt EP is a great and unique place of true stories by common people (cutting out the ones that are not).
One also noticeable lack in EP is that, while we do see people who are victims of hurt , disease or suffering, we don't see the people who cause hurt, where they come from and what causes them to act the way they do. Those experiences of them also go a long way in making a better or worse world, and in addition to law handing over the punishment for the symptoms, they will require healing and therapy of the causes. I wonder, What would that project be ?
