There was an interview with him on Sword & Laser (the Geek and Sundry YouTube version of the show, not the podcast).

I can't do it from this phone, but look up $8 billion IPod on Ted talks by him.  It is hilarious.  He also did an @Google talk.

Oh, that was him? This Week in Tech podcast played the audio from this talk ~4 weeks ago. It's great. All the more reason to read the book.

Reading it now... Old fashioned I know, but at least I am reading it on my phone.

I thought you were going to talk about this Year Zero  Where they clone Jesus.

It is a shitty book.
