Funny TED talk on design

I don't know this guy beyond the bio on this page. But I really enjoyed his TED talk.

His last two questions/points really jumped out at me.  I don't want to spoil the video for you, so I'll hide my thoughts below the 'more' link.

"What are you thinking?  You're going to be dead a really long time!"

I propose that the quote works even if you believe in an afterlife.  The consequences of this life, on yourself, on those you love, and on the world at large, will continue long after your four-score and ten.

Do what you want to do.  Put something of yourself into your work.  Experiment and try new things.

Wonderful insights and advice, even if you don't appreciate his ideas on art and typography.
