Better than sunscreen - via blogging town square Dave Winer, commencement address by Jerry Zucker here. Samples:
"It's great to plan for your future. Just don't live there, because really nothing ever happens in the future. Whatever happens happens now, so live your life where the action is - now."
"If you have a dream, now is the time to pursue it, before you buy furniture."

and via Scott Rosenberg, William Gibson speaking to the Director's Guild of America putting the 'digital media' struggles into past-present-future context. As SR says, The whole speech is extraordinary. No sound bites, go read it.

well, one bite: "...the unthinking construction of a species-wide, time-defying, effectively immortal prosthetic memory..."
