Conversation worth spreading

In this talk at TED, Eric Berlow and Sean Gourley present the analysis/mapping they made, from TED talks, everyone contributions and comment to each talk, of IDEAS connections through CONVERSATIONS, and how people interact with those conversations, who they are, from where did they participated, etc..

They are showing how topics are mapped in and between conversation, and how they can be surprisingly connected ..

What those guys did is amazing ... but is is really meaningful? Can we really apply mathematical model to human conversation?
Will this mathematical model be useful for something but marketing?

Anyway, it's worth watching and listening ...

Wow, thats neat... it has lots of connections to what went through my mind while participating in the XperLink experiment. Will these models be useful ? They are as useful as maps! Which means it can be very useful to find your way through the "Lands Of Ideas".
Will it be exploited for marketing and surveillance ? Safe bet!
