The Matthew Diffee speeches on generating good ideas is a hilarious take on the creative process. The Los Angeles inhabitant is a cartoonist for The New Yorker Magazine and Texas Monthly. He is an editor at the Rejection Collection Books, which constitute compilations of rejected New Yorker cartoons, and host of the Steam Powered Hour, which can be seen via live-stream and on YouTube. He is currently writing a book for Scribner, an American publishing house based out of New York City.
The speaker is an advocate for quantity over quality when it comes to brainstorming and coming up with ideas. The Matthew Diffee talk explores his belief that it is better to pick out the good ideas when you already have something written down.
