At lunch today, James Burke came up in conversation.
For those of you that don't know him, he's a author/speaker/historian/etc/etc who is most famous for his Connections series of programs done back in the 70's, 80's and 90's. More detail on Burke here.
I freakin' LOVE Connections and continually wrestle with dishing out the $150/per for the 3 box sets.
Anyhow, after doing some searching, I found out that Burke's opening speech from the ACM97 conference is available online here. (the video starts at slide 2 or 3)
You have to click through the slides one at a time and click the video icon on the top right for each individually, but it's well worth it. He's very entertaining, and his comments are as pertinent today as they were then.
Go watch it now. It's good for your brain!
