With humor and persistence, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock dives into the hidden but influential world of brand marketing on his quest to make a completely sponsored film about sponsorship. (And yes, onstage naming rights for this talk were sponsored too. By whom and for how much? He'll tell you.)

Always thought it would be a good idea if politicians had to wear clothes with their sponsor logos all over - like in sports...

Love how the lady came out at the end and said, "Ahem. Aren't you forgetting something? I think that money belongs to us."

The importance of Morgan spurlock's talk on transparency is that secrecy is the refuge of the dishonest and the incompetent.

This is a transparent view inside the creation of a transparent movie about transparent marketing.

I want to suggest the subject of Morgan's next analysis - the negativity of comments on forums. Quite shocked by the dogmatic comments from some, what happened to opinion? While I might not agree with everything in this talk it was thought provoking and interesting, superbly presented and somewhat fun as well. I'd suggest that we try to take away something positive from all interactions.
