The question is interesting, but what I have a somewhat negative 
reaction to is the next passage:

It is nice that you are willing to summarize whatever appears, but 
somewhat arrogant in my eyes.  There might be things appearing that you 
do not regard as of first interest that might be of interest to others. 
  Therefore, the all parts of the discussion or responses should be 
public as well.  The response of David Winsemius pointing at (among 
other things) at the presentation of Rosling at TED is in my eyes a very 
good start.

In other words, I therefore suggest that the list ignores the last 
paragraph in the question from you.
