A wonderful Design Matters episode with author Simon Sinek on the fruits of good leadership. Sinek, a more and more common household name nowadays, is a person I came to respect more and more in light of recent events. This was kicked off while listening to one of the first Creative Mornings Podcasts in where a 2012 talk was broadcasted. I'll assume you have seen his 2009 TED talk 'How great leaders inspire action' (it is the most watched TED talk of all time after all) and his Creative Mornings' 'Love your work' talk is a great addition to that. Enjoy.
A 13 minute rant that is worth your 13 minutes, especially if you're in the dark about Net Neutrality. If you're done watching, there's also things you can do to try and save the internet; please submit your own rant here (I did). Let the FCC know that they're a bunch of shameless shitlords (I did).
Jon Negroni, the other kind of enthousiast. While I love the 'dark world of Pixar', Jon takes his enthusiasm to a whole new level. Jon coined the idea of 'The Pixar Theory' - The theory that every Pixar movie takes place in the same universe, albeit thousands of years apart. Before you think: 'Okay, yeah well, that's not too weird, is it?', consider the astounding level of detail found in all the Pixar movies to support his theory. Furthermore, these aren't 2 or 4 movies that take place in the same universe, like for instance Blade Runner & Alien, but these are 13 seemingly unconnected movies, all with a unique strand of characters. Best of all, Jon captivates you with his explanation, well worth a read.
Have a look at his website to read the full theory. If the wall of text is just too much for you, there are YouTube explanations (1, 2) for the true, fat and lazy Axioms amongst us. Or have a look at the visual representation of Jon Negroni's Pixar Theory.
Jon recently even started writing a spin-off serial novel, 'The Pixar Detective' on his website, so if you really want to get versed in the Pixar universe...
