Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura at Google

Jesse Ventura was more familiar to me from his role in the Predator, The Running Man and Demolition Man films than as a wrestler and colour commentator on US sports programmes. He is a great speaker. Most of the talk is about his politics of transparent government and Wikileaks. Whilst interesting, I found his perceptive reasons for not having a cell phone fitted to his car as part of his self-introduction the bit that really grabbed my attention; it is a great exercise in understanding the user context and user experience which we seem to have lost.
