A couple of years ago, Jonathan Coulton wrote A Talk with George, a song about an imaginary talk with George Plimpton in a bar. You could listen to it or read the lytics, and leave it at that. Alternately (or perhaps additionally), you could read Chris Guillebeau's blog, titled The Art of Nonconformity, often. (It's linked to the "Just Plain Cool" typelist to the left.) Chris is planning to visit every country in the world within 5 years and I hope he makes it. I for one plan to check back with Chris often.
