Thanks Garr! I'm always looking for Seth Godin presentations. Also, I just received my Brain Rules book. Can't wait to read it.

Thanks for all the valuable information.


Very interesting, thanks.

Did anyone else notice the slick fade around minute 44, just after the "Why is GoogleMaps not working" question? Someone edited the footage and cut out a couple of minutes. He went from talking about GoogleMaps to talking about Howard Stern on radio.

The really exciting question is... what was the censored question?! ;-)

Totally off topic: so you weren't kidding when you earlier responded that you'd like to visit New Zealand. Sadly I have doubts I'll get $approval$ to attend your presentation, but I'm sure you'll enjoy your time here.


Also totally off topic: The slide showing in the Google Video preview is a great example of alienating a portion of your audience. I am colorblind and I know that there is a word above personal (I can see the compression artifacts) but I can't read it. Slides such as this frustrate me more than normal sighted folks can imagine.

When designing slides it may be a good idea to show some compassion to those of us* with less than perfect color vision.

On the plus side, this is one of those slides that adds little -- if any -- value. Charts and graphs which are color coded are much worse.

Sorry about the rant... It is a sore spot with me.


* us = approximately 10% of all guys (women are rarely colorblind.

Sticking with the off-topic topic: my attendance at your June 30th presentation in Wellington is approved! Thoroughly looking forward to it. Lance.


I liked that Seth used pictures for his slides and very few words.

Garr, I would like to thank you in kind for the pointers to these excellent presentations. This is Mark Pesce's excellent presentation on Mob Rules. This is Mark at his best and I am sure your readership will enjoy it. Beautifully timed, superbly illustrated and memorable.


Regards, John.
