As I was browsing youtube today, I ran into an interesting video that was converted for Youtube. Buckminster Fuller was an American architect, author, designer, furturist, inventor and visionary. Bucky, as some called him was most known for the authoring of over 30 books and the geodesic dome.
In this video, taken in mid May of 1974, R. Buckminster talks about synergy and basically the design of the world an our Universe. Enjoy!
Buckminster Fuller was truly a unique individual and in this particular video we observer a great amount of patience as his interviewer appeared to be very annoying and interrupting. Here are some other good links to learn more about this wonderful man.
