Creative Destruction

I recently stumbled across this NASA shot from the aftermath of Katrina. Oddly beautiful.
In a fit of sleeplessness last night, I caught up with a few podcasts. Fareed Zakaria's excellent GPS show on CNN was a must-watch this week. I particularly liked the Q&A with Singapore's founding father, former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. Check out the videos here or download via iTunes podcasts.

Speaking of Singapore, I'll be moderating a panel at the PSFK conference Asia on October 10th. Full details are here. Come say hello if you find yourself in the area.

Elsewhere, I gave a talk a few weeks at the Interesting Conference entitled, "A Brief History of Techno." The conference was a great success overall and I thank David Nottoli and the Open Intelligence Agency for coordinating everything. Really inspiring topics and speakers, and I can't wait for the next installment.

"He's been a governor for three years. He was mayor of the 105th largest city in America...It is not a big town...it would be an intensely political choice where you said, you know what, I'm really not first and foremost concerned with if this person is capable of being president."
