Bruce Sterling and his call for millennial revolution @ SXSW 2011 [video]

This guy just kills me. It’s reason enough on its own to attend SXSW.

Last year he floored me with his closing speech in which he concluded with the words “Telling the truth is a revolutionary act… So why not right here, right now.”

This year he built to another stirring, angry, truthful, inspirational conclusion. And a clarion call to the Millennial generation to take power:

“Another world is inevitable. The future is unwritten. Good luck to you.”
