I posted back in March about Lawrence Lessig’s “Keynote Ballet.” Lessig gives beautiful presentations. He uses simple slides in a way that illustrates his points without boring his audience. I occasionally find myself counseling clients to skip bullet-heavy PowerPoint decks in favor of an approach similar to Lessig. Please take a moment to watch this presentation – even if it’s just the first minute or two. You’ll get the idea.
I’ve recently added a new podcast to my roster. Stuff You Should Know is brought to you by Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant from How Stuff Works. The boys give you the lowdown on such subjects as the evils of high fructose corn syrup and how face transplants work. Clever and geeky, funny and well-read, Josh and Chuck educate while demonstrating a love for language and stats. Averaging about 20 minutes, episodes are great content for killing time while running errands or driving to the office.
