Inspiration by Media
William McDonough I've read Cradle to Cradle, but McDonough is a brilliant speaker. He is pushing the edge in ecological design, and has the ear of the Chinese government. Cory Doctorow Cory spoke very well at the Red Hat Summit a few years ago. Google has an amazing number of videos of him, plus there are his lectures from the course he taught at USC this year. Lawrence Lessig I think I got to this via Miguel's blog a few years ago, but Lessig's amazing free culture talk/slideshow is still outstanding and educational. Others I've recently enjoyed talks by Burt Rutan and Jane Goodall. The quality of the speakers you can watch at TED, Authors@Google Talks, and others blows my mind. Who inspires you?
