Education as Entertainment and the Downfall of LessWrong

One of the things that appealed to me when I found LW was a line I read which specifically mentioned that watching TED videos is not going to get us very far after a while. And I find the same thing with lots of the material I find online and even with some books or some of the TTC lectures. There is a lot of repetitive, shallow coverage of the same topics with a failure to go deeper. I can barely watch any documentaries that get shown on TV now because of how painfully basic the content is. I was hoping that LW would be better. I hope you are wrong about the downfall of LW.
