This is Water

David Foster Wallace is a genius and this graduation speech is by far one of the best I’ve ever heard (it might even come second to Steve Job’s 2005 Stanford University speech in my book). Though it isn’t really graduation season anymore, his down-to-earth approach to what understanding what education really means is always applicable.

We love The Glossary’s video production of Wallace’s “This is Water” keynote speech given at Kenyon College in 2005. It takes the words of Wallace and presents them with a visual-audio interpretation.

What do you think of his speech?
