Relating the unique mindset and powers of hackers to all aspects of invention and innovation, he terrifies and delights all audiences.
An interesting talk, but he is absolutely wrong there are no real alternatives for our growing energy consuming culture but to use nuclear power. In fact we could solve our energy issues just with solar power and hydrogen which is unfortunately is just at the beginning development state. Right now, however, there are still enough let's say green solutions that are only prevented from general usage by our general stupidity and very powerful especially stupid or just ego-centric people.
Nonetheless he made some good examples what a hacker does or likes to do.
P.S.: the cameraman deserves the golden raspberry award for her/his work.
