This graduation speech, by Nipun Mehta, is outstanding. The speech is chock full of life lessons and his acronym — W-A-L-K — is a wonderful way to remember how you should receive the world and the multitude of experiences that come your way during life’s journey. WALK stands for: Witness, Accept, Love, Know Thyself. This is a transcript of the Baccalaureate address to the University of Pennsylvania’s graduating class of 2012, delivered by Nipun Mehta [originally published on Daily Good].

A New Kind of Car Stereo – The Devium Dash | Uncrate

I’ll guarantee you this will be the new vessel for car stereos in the United States in the next 2-3 years.

The Devium Dash ($290-$340) is a new in-dash car stereo that is built around a faceplate made to accomodate an iPhone or iPod touch, securing it in a CNC’d aluminum and plastic cradle while giving you full access to the touchscreen and all your apps. Other features of the Dash include a double-din body, 50W x 4 output with 2 preamp outputs, and your choice of standard aluminum or anodized black or white finishes. Arriving in July.

Best Job | P&G London 2012 Olympic Games Film – YouTube

This might be one of the best TV spots I’ve seen in a long while. Was happy to share this work from W+K with my kids and say, ‘This is what great advertising looks like.’

Bravo W+K. Bravo.

Susan Cain: The power of introverts – YouTube

http://www.ted.com In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated.

This TED talk and her book has profound implications for inward, philosophical, reflective types of personalities (people who tend towards “I” vs. “E” on the Myers Briggs Personality test) since 1 out of every 3 people are introverts, and completely misunderstood in an extrovert dominated world. Worth watching the TED talk. Her book can be found here:
