I adore watching people speak about their work, their passion and their process.  I have spent many enjoyable hours on TED.com basking in the glory of people doing extraordinary things.  Not too long ago, this young man caught my attention.  Yes, he could very well be a modern-day version of Alex P. Keeton (note the 80’s reference for my 40-somethings out there), but his confidence is captivating.  Towards the end of the video, about 3.5 minutes in, he makes the most charming comment about knowing more about technology than his teachers.  I have no doubt he is correct.  I will go further in saying there are a few things he could teach us as well:

1.  Let your curiosity spark your creativity.
2.  Never underestimate your ability to bring products to the market.
3.  Age doesn’t matter.

That’s my two cents. What’s yours? (Let me know in the comments below!)
