JJ Abrams TED talk: The Mystery Box = Infinite Possibility, and you have a voice now too.

Favorite quote: "The creation of stuff is democritized... Go make your movie. There's nothing stopping you from going out there and getting the technology. You can lease, rent, buy stuff off the shelf just as good as the stuff that's used by the [pros]."

There's something to this that I think is incredibly powerful. You see super high-quality RED cameras on the scene (see awesome posterous user MrVix), and Final Cut Pro (Sachin used to work on it!) and the technology gets cheaper and better. And that means that there should be a far greater diversity in voices, especially in movies.

And a lot more dreams being realized... and hopefully a lot more mystery boxes too.
