I Wish J.K. Rowling Had Spoken at My Graduation

J.K. Rowling's address to the Harvard class of '08, on the "fringe benefits of failure."
This video is on the long side, but as is no surprise, it is very well-written and engaging, so if you have some time and want to feel inspired, refreshed, and entertained, give it a listen.  It's like the graduation speech you never had, and you also want her to become your adopted aunt.  

I'd actually never really heard an interview or anything with her, I realized, so I was very interested to hear her speak, and the speech is personal and wonderful.  After listening to this, I felt like a new grad all over again, inspired to head out into the world and make a difference.
