Semi-famous author drops bomb of awesome on know-it-all college kids
I think we can all agree that school pretty much sucks, but that thinking for yourself totally kicks ass. Author and all-around good guy, David Foster Wallace encourages us to do exactly that in his commencement address to the Class of 2005 at Kenyon College (yeah, I’d never heard of it, either). The text of the speech has been floating around the interwebs for a while, but it was just turned into an amazing little short film by TheGlossary.com.
Watch it, and maybe change the way you think about the world.
EDIT: Aw, snap! It seems Vimeo has removed the video (why?). It’s not nearly as good, but here’s the audio of the full speech.
