I know this was filmed back in May, but with the impact skateboarding has had on street culture, this video makes for particularly interesting viewing. Rodney Mullen, the godfather of street skating, provides a comprehensive account for himself in this exuberant talk with TED he shares his love of the open skateboarding community and how the unique environments it plays in drive the creation of new tricks — fostering prolific ingenuity purely for passion’s sake. Definitely worth taking time out of your day to watch this.
