Interviews with energy and intelligent people never get old. So, in honor of Apple's 2013 Worldwide Developer's Conference this week, we are posting an interview between Grady Booch and Steve Wozniak.

Richard Feynman (physicist) describes his methods for discovery in this video.
I would also suggest reading his books, in particular:
A Human-Computer-Interface concept video from Sun Microsystems made in 1994. According to the author some of the concepts touched on are:
Public Communication, Ubiquitous Computing, Julie’s Screen Hardware, Julie’s Screen Content, Julie & Adrian’s Video Conference, Low-Latency Collaboration, ”Intelligent“ Layout Engine, Sun Pad, Casual Scanning, Casual Moving-Image Capture, Casual 3D Texture Mapping, Communication & Collaboration, System’s Awareness of Julie, Remote Meetings, Agent-based Internet Browser
