Stephen Fry: "What I wish I had known when I was 18"

STEPHEN FRY: WHAT I WISH I'D KNOWN WHEN I WAS 18 from Peter Samuelson on Vimeo.

- abdication of self - less about being altruistic and more about not focusing on "I" because of its negative consequences
- dont do the same things... choose a different DVD - he wishes there was a roulette for netflix that would randomly send him a DVD
- noel coward quote "work is more fun than fun" - his point is that you should be doing a job that you really enjoy
- "have a hero" - that we should be shameless about having heroes
- mastering stuff comes through interaction with others
- authority comes from the validity of information and its openness, not arbitrary power
