I mentioned this in conversation last week; any subject becomes interesting when presented by a super passionate person. Here are a few examples from the ever excellent TED conference.
If you only watch one of these, make it this one. This is a guy who’s PASSIONATE about his work. Extremely interesting stuff about our oceans and some crazy numbers and examples on what we don’t know about them.
The former Microsoftie and bonified genius on his life of fascinations. (side note : must have made for an annoying sound level when he was having conversations with Bill Gates, how come nerds have voices like these?)
Music, the love of music and how to interpret / appreciate classical music.
He’s got a bit of a weird rythm to his speech but some great experiences and thoughts concerning the Worldwide web of belief and ritual.
