"The Fringe Benefits of Failure"

This is a post unrelated to any of my usual stuff.

I was browsing videos and came across this 2008 Harvard commencement speech by J.K. Rowling. Now, I read some of the Harry Potter books with Ben and was not blown away. But I was stunned by this commencement speech. Stunned. It's beautiful. And funny. And inspiring. (And so is she, all of the above.)

This clip is only the first ten minutes. If you like it and want to hear more, go to and search for it. It's magic.
