How to Start a Movement. #OccupyWallStreet

"First, of course you know, a leader needs the guts to stand out and be ridiculed. But what he’s doing is so easy to follow. So here’s his first follower with a crucial role. He’s going to show everyone else how to follow….the first follower is actually an underestimated form of leadership in itself. It takes guts just to stand out like that….And here comes a second follower. Now it’s not a lone nut, it’s not two nuts, three is a crowd, and a crowd is news. So a movement must be public. It’s important, not just to show the leader, but the followers because you find that new followers emulate the followers, not the leader.”

"Leadership is over-glorifiedIf you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow. And when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first one to stand up and join in. ”

I’m glad to finally see the @TEDtalks performance by @cellogoddess Maya Beiser make it to the TED website. What a stunning performance.

Great multi-track/multi-channel video of Maya Beiser performing at TED2011. She’ll be appearing on an upcoming Michael Harrison recording, but this really speaks for itself in terms of production and, especially, playing. See here and here for more things to expect from her.
