I grew up admiring David Byrne and Brian Eno.  From the great music they’ve made to the incisive social commentary to being consistently ahead of the curve in both technology and cultural trends (the good ones).

I found the audio clips attached to this Wired article charming — you get to listen in on a casual lunch between them.  This both brought them down from the stratosphere in terms of approachability, as well as bolstered my preconception that their signal-to-noise ration is higher than 99% of us achieve.
Great stuff. See the sidebar 1/3rd down, titled “David Byrne in Conversation with Brian Eno” 
Oh, and it’s not news, but I’m ever more convinced after listening to these guys that record companies, as we know them, are doomed.
