Bilerico alumni Prince Gomolvilas did a TEDx talk earlier this year and the video is now online. Prince is a brilliant playwright and was, hands down, one of our funniest contributors to grace the site.

When Jerame and I went to LA a few years ago, Prince was one of the people I insisted on meeting. We went to a fabulous Thai restaurant he recommended. Sadly, Thai Elvis, one of the main reasons we chose it, wasn't performing that night. Prince's wit and banter more than made up for it. We ended the night at a piano bar in Silverlake - which sounds like the set up to a great story that Prince could tell at his next talk. If anyone could make a half empty piano bar sound exciting and dramatic, it's Prince.

Extra credit fun fact we found out while visiting him: Prince was born in Indiana.
