Must Watch YouTube Videos

x3xsolxdierx3x's Avatar

Among several outlets, I admit, YouTube has been a serious source of great inspiration to me. From multi-million-viewed keynote lectures by CEOs of massive companies, to inspirational videos with only a few hundred or thousand views, here in Kuwait these videos have really helped to trigger creative processes in my mind. I had wanted to share some that I’ve enjoyed watching, but, I’d also like to challenge everyone to go out, explore, watch, and share some of these videos here in this thread.

Here have been some that I have watched recently:

Sometimes, I’m not so sure that many are convinced of how much FREE, highly valuable, information we all have available at our very fingertips….if we just look in the right places….

I wonder if the kid, at the 3:46 mark, has tried to submit his invention to EN yet? lol…

Anyone here familiar with Shark Tanks/Dragon’s Den?

Here are some very inspirational videos, from the “Road to Riches” series, which documents the lives of the “Sharks”/“Dragons”. Some, like Kevin O’ Leary and Robert Herjavec were both (sharks and dragons)….

I just finished watching all these:

I get one day off a week here in Kuwait.

Rather than hit the movie theater, or lounge out by the Camp Arifjan pool….this is what I prefer to do…lol…watch inspirational videos, and think up my next EN submission :)

Interesting how Dyson argues for qaulity over costs including features that are only appreciated by the comsumer after a purchase. Even EN doesn’t seem to do that!

Ralf, do you have an example of forum censorship with respect to patent system crticism? If not then I hope you will reconsider your to decision to not share your epiphany. I authored a thread wherein I slammed my patent examiner and met with no censorship. I believe the majority of us are here to learn. Give us what you have and let the chips fall where they may. An aversion to controversy is an unfamiliar side of you that I haven’t seen before. I’m going to heckle you if you DON’T. HECKLE HECKLE HECKLE

I’ll look for that email Ralf. This is sounding too good. Is Brett still enamored with Ralf after the garden party? Getting invited is one thing, hitting it out of the park is another. I hope you did it all.

Ralf, I’ll share my thoughts on that here also. I believe the practice of plundering the funds from the USPTO to throw in the $50,000 per second debt and overspending vacuum our wise bureacrats have created is the central problem. If the funds we pay into the USPTO were considered dedicated to the dept. I believe we could count on a better system for inventors. Having to hope for justice rather than counting on it is an insidious cancer on the heart of our community.
As with most government departments I believe privatizing much of the process wherein people are held accountable and can be fired, wherein competiton breeds excellence rather than tenure breeding mediocrity, is a large part of the solution. I do recognize that my radical views may be affected by thirty years of self employment.
Stepping down from my soap box now. doot de doot de doot de doot de do
