Video of the Week

Through our sights and sounds initiative, we realize that the web is inundated with millions of audio and video content that is of immense value since it addresses the same things we write about.

So every Sunday, we shall share a video that we feel is profound edifying, funny, informative, interesting, timeless, daring, creative or any other attribute to make it worth sharing with you.

The same video is available at TED. Here is the transcript.

On our sister site The Walkabout, we featured this speech in a post that examined writing as a labor of love. In addition, we highlighted some of the most outstanding excerpts from J.K. Rowling's address.
