Heard of the Summit Series?  Modeled in part on TED but specifically geared toward up-and-coming entrepreneurs who would rather ski, kayak, and surf than hang around in hotel lobbies and swap business cards.

Recently, we recommended that a friend watch the video “Paris in 9 Minutes” because it is the most invigorating, testosterone pumped, tire-screeching video we’ve ever seen. On an August morning in 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris.

Based on some good advice over at Mashable, we just added these 10 sharp-shootin designers to our twitter feed.
