When Conan left NBC, he gave a farewell speech that was one of my favorite I’ve ever read. It also included a quote that I could only wish I had said first:

But, being the design geeks that we are around here at TNW, a single quote on a page wasn’t enough. Apparently, it wasn’t enough for the Digital Design class at Oklahoma State University either. They have done a project of kinetic typography that truly adds a beautiful element that goes even beyond the speech itself.

Well done, class. A+.
