Back in 2010, John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design gave a speech at 99u. "At 99U, Behance's education arm, we focus on what happens after inspiration -- researching the forces that truly drive ideas to fruition. Our profiles of proven idea makers, action-oriented tips, and annual conference are all designed to help you translate ideas from vision to reality." In this funny and relevant talk, he relates to the creative community and our struggles of legitimacy as workers. He addresses the stereotype that people who are "creative" are typically lazy, whimsical people who exist to make paintings that no one gets.
