I love Adam Savage. I love his public speaking -- he's a great speaker, a great storyteller, and his topics are always brilliant and inspiring. He's exactly the kind of artist I want to listen to. He talks about pop culture and mechanisms and technology fondly, without judgement or condescension. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from this talk:
We have to keep getting kids interested in making things, and getting their hands dirty, and putting them -- getting them into their world.
The teaching myself how to make things in order to have those things is the engine of everything that I have achieved in my whole life up to now.
