Inspiring, memorable and entertaining. Prof Barry Nalebuf’s (author of Why Not?: How to Use Everyday Ingenuity to Solve Problems Big and Small) lecture from Yale Economics class is truly great. It’s focused on innovation, creativity and problem solving. Particular highlights for me are the segments on upside-down food, and the use of the “What Would Donald Trump Do?” method. Both things I’ve recounted to various people on various occasions.
Academic Earth is full of amazing lectures from some of the best schools and biggest brains around. The Stamford course on Programming Methodologies is superb – I’ve only watched 4 of them so far, and I’m a bit scared of watching any more in case I become dangerous.
