Here are some interesting videos on some of his talks, in preparation to his keynote speech at the Incubate Pirate Conference on September 17. First off, here”s a great promotional clip for his book, which is a great introduction in the subject of his book, if you haven”t read it yet:

Remember, you can still get a digital copy of the book via the Pirate”s Dilemma website, and you”re able to name your own price for it. Next a video of a speech Matt gave at the Deutscher Trendtag last year. In this presentation, he discusses the topics of his book. Entitled The Pirate’s Dilemma: How Youth Culture Is Reinventing Capitalism, he talks about how underground cultures have brought on the

    Piracy in the arts is the overarching theme

    of Incubate 2010. This theme is visible throughout all different parts of the festival program and will be

    especially investigated at the Pirate Conference on Friday September 17. Tickets

    for the conference are sold seperately from the festival tickets through and you determine the ticket price. Arrr!

    Charles Leadbeater will open Incubate 2010 with a keynote speech on Sunday September 12. Charles Leadbeater is a British author and former advisor to Tony Blair. His most recent book, We-think, explores the new phenomenon of mass creativity exemplified by web sites such as YouTube, Wikipedia and MySpace. Check out a brief overview of the basic ideas in this book in the clip below and after that see the man himself explain how the sharing of content and knowledge by plain people leads to bigger ideas and innovations than contemporary major companies are capable of.
