31 (More) Days of #BIF7 - Day 1 - Richard Saul Wurman

Before there was BIF, there was TED, and before there was TED, there was Richard Saul Wurman.

For those of you who don't recognize the name, Richard Saul Wurman is the creator of the TED conferences and a pioneer "information architect" (he also coined the term). He is also the author of over 80 books, including many Access guide books.

I would characterize Richard Saul Wurman's onstage time at BIF-7 as an innovation story coated in equal parts piss and vinegar. His lifelong passion for making information easily understandable promoting communication is evident, as well as his willingness to move to the edge and explore new modalities, including with his forthcoming WWW.WWW conference.
