Y’know, I’d say it IS an exaggeration to call TED ‘the holy temple of tech.’ For one thing, it’s in Vancouver. Also the words 'holy temple of tech'  https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/apr/21/carole-cadwalladr-ted-tech-google-facebook-zuckerberg-silicon-valley 

It wasn’t so long ago that the Guardian believed that civilization-level disaster would be caused by … TED talks  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/30/we-need-to-talk-about-ted 

Anyway I'm sure that Facebook has been shaken to its very core now that someone has dared to criticize it out loud, for the first time.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk
