In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the
commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon
College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known
until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a
doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and
perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value
We made this video, built around an abridged version of the
original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of
the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have
otherwise been interested.
Really well done. I miss Wallace so very much.
