For any that are not familiar with TED, it is a gathering of relevant minds with the purpose of sharing their thoughts on whatever it is that they specialize in. The speakers have ranged from Michelle Obama to John Maeda to this guy, James Howard Kunstler. While this talk does date back to 2004, I felt that it’s points remain very valid and very similar to the views shared by many of us, althought the delivery may be a little strong for some. Warning: Contains some profanity.

I LOVED IT! Thanks for the link. I think I have a suburbia hating crush on this guy. And I totally agree with what he has to say about Boston City Hall and the “plaza” that surrounds it. Whoever designed it should be locked away and the key thrown out. Every-time I have to do business at or near that building I feel like I should bring my passport and my communist Russian era visa.
He’s like the intensely disgruntled version of John Stilgoe.
