Cool Website for Inspiration

Check out this website. It called the Do Lectures and it's a variety of people speaking about what they do. And, they usually do cool things.

You should look at this lecture in particular by Geoff McFetridge who does motion work and general graphic design work. It's an interesting lecture and inspiring.
