Majora Carter

Today's NY Times asks whether urban greening hero, Majora Carter, has betrayed her beloved Bronx. The problem is that her fame and success has made it hard for her to help in the same way and the article tries to capture the complexity, not just one side. But the comments really open up the broader issues. One of them asks whether this is "the TED effect" because her fame on TED Talks is directly behind her catapult into greater spheres of influence.
