Fifteen Minutes of Fame

It is seldom that we talk about the things that we really love or we know a lot about to people that do not share that exact same passion or are not in our field of work. What a pity!

Here are some ways to do it:

Dave Eggers about a great homework project he does with public schools in the US

Majora Carter fights environmental racism in the Bronx

CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, tells you to always stay hungry
