When Casey Gerald's religion failed him, he searched for something new to believe in — in business, in government, in philanthropy — but found only false saviors. In this moving talk, Gerald urges us all to question our beliefs and embrace uncertainty.
Casey Gerald chronicles the current state of the American Dream and explores ways to sustain it for a new generation. Full bio

Dustin Hoffman breaks down talking about his epiphany about women, beauty and stereotypes...
In this clip from the AFI Archive, actor Dustin Hoffman shares how the film TOOTSIE came to be and why he had to play the role of Dorothy Michaels.
I’m four years older than my brother Tom and though we couldn’t be more different, he is also my best friend. They say great fighter pilots don’t climb into jets they wrap jets around them, and so it is with Tom and spreadsheets. As a partner in our entrepreneurial start-up, Tom was our ace number cruncher; constantly cranking out the analytics we needed to run the business.
One day he came into my office and almost shyly said, “I’ve been trying to figure out how you make decisions for six years. I still don’t know how you do it, but I have to admit you’re almost always right. What’s the secret?”
Coming from a younger brother this was high praise indeed, but though I was sincerely touched, I couldn’t help but imagine Tom poring over a decision tree that was six years long and six years wide.
“Tom,” I finally said, “I have no idea. The only thing I know is I know.”Read more
This is a short film made to demonstrate the collaborative movie 'Waking Up'. Waking Up is a movie in the making about a positive future for Humanity. And hopefully, Humanity will contribute in making it real.
The film is about Ben, a cancer ridden wealthy businessman who freeze himself down in 2012, in the hope that humanity once might be able to thaw him up and cure his disease, so that he can continue to enjoy and expand his empire.
In the year 2112 he is awakened again. The world has gone through massive changes towards the positive. Both technology and human values has developed into a whole new world, positive in all aspects for humanity.
One of the aspects is that money and property is gone, and people do things for other reasons than hoarding wealth. The new economic system is an emergent one called a resource based economy (http://www.theresourcebasedeconomy.com/). Waking Up is about Ben's experiences in this world and the difficulties he faces in waking up to this new reality.
In this short film, Ben is walking in the woods with his newly acquainted guide, Aweena. He has only been awake for a few days, after several weeks of curing and restituting his body while he was asleep. He is a bit confused, and can't really understand what has happened. He feels somewhat attracted to this new world and to Aweena, but at the same time he has trouble believing it is real.
Waking Up is an 'open source' movie where others can contribute. The website for the movie is http://www.wakingupmovie.com. It is a movie about a positive future for Humanity and hopefully, Humanity will contribute in writing it and making it real.
Many people have gained interest in this the last few months, and there is now a thriving community of more or less experienced writers working on the script through Google Docs. Go to the mentioned website for more info.

Daniel Reisel studies the brains of criminal psychopaths (and mice). And he asks a big question: Instead of warehousing these criminals, shouldn't we be using what we know about the brain to help them rehabilitate?
