Here are two things I love: 1) John Hodgman, of the “I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC” ads, also of the “Daily Show,” of “This American Life”, formerly of The New York Times Magazine and formerly of the forever-on-hiatus Little Gray Book reading series. 2) TED Talks, of the Technology, Entertainment, Design conference series.

Now these two things have merged and can be enjoyed in one sitting, as Hodgman’s address to the conference from February is now available for all to enjoy. If you have fifteen minutes to be delighted, and let’s face it, considering how today is going, you probably do, sit back and enjoy.
