I really enjoy TED talks maybe it can be a source of inspiration?

TED Commandments


1) Thou Shalt Not Simply Trot Out thy Usual Shtick
2) Thou Shalt Dream a Great Dream, or Show Forth a Wondrous New Thing,
Or Share Something
Thou Hast Never Shared Before
3) Thou Shalt Reveal thy Curiosity and Thy Passion
4) Thou Shalt Tell a Story
5) Thou Shalt Freely Comment on the Utterances of Other Speakers for
the Skae of Blessed Connection and Exquisite Controversy
6) Thou Shalt Not Flaunt thine Ego. Be Thou Vulnerable. Speak of thy
Failure as well as thy Success.
7) Thou Shalt Not Sell from the Stage: Neither thy Company, thy Goods,
thy Writings, nor thy Desperate need for Funding; Lest Thou be Cast
Aside into Outer Darkness.
8) Thou Shalt Remember all the while: Laughter is Good.
9) Thou Shalt Not Read thy Speech.
10) Thou Shalt Not Steal the Time of Them that Follow Thee
