Astro Teller: Monkeys, Shakespeare, and the Fast Learning of Failure
I happened across this short clip of Astro Teller, talking about failure. Teller, whose name wasn’t cool enough and so needed an even cooler job title, is currently “Captain of Moonshots” at X (which is a very cool company).
In particular, I like the distinction Teller makes between progress versus motion. The examples are really fun, to boot.
It’s a short video, and well worth your time. I defininitely need to start using more monkeys and time machines in my analogies.
