I enjoy listening to great communicators. Here’s a small collection of talks I’ve particularly enjoyed…
Guy Steele and Dick Gabriel’s “50 in 50” is a great take on the history of programming languages.
As someone with three small children, one of my favorite films is Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. It’s not to everyone’s taste, but I love the aesthetic: the gothic style and sumptuous visuals. It is one of the most visually impressive films I’ve seen. Jamie Caliri’s paper cut end titles are fantastic. Emily Browning makes a great debut and Jim Carey seems to make sense here. I just discovered this delightful advertisement for United by Jamie Caliri; again, it really strikes a chord for me, both for the aesthetic and for the father/work/child subject matter.
