Leonard Nimoy, (of Dr Spock fame on Star Trek) actor, writer, director & photographer gave the keynote speech @DEMO Enterprise Disruption.  He was really inspiring particularly about the creative life.

I particularly loved his quote at the end:

“Edwin Booth, the actor heard the solemn whisper of a god of all arts.  He said ‘I shall give you hunger & pain & sleepless nights.  Also beauty & satisfaction known to few & glimpses of the heavenly life.  None of these will you have continually.  And of their coming & going you shall not be foretold.’  This is a perfect description of what it is like to live a Creative Life.’
