UC Berkeley's 2010 Commencement speech calls for Moxie. Honored by Newsweek as one of the "Women Shaping the 21st Century," Tiffany Shlain is an acclaimed filmmaker, artist, founder of The Webby Awards, co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and a Henry Crown Fellow of The Aspen Institute.
Few people could appreciate the use of tweets and text messages more than keynote speaker Tiffany Shlain who addressed a sold-out audience of 11,500 people. Shlain noted that the World Wide Web was in its infancy when she graduated from UC Berkeley in 1992. Director Shlain urged graduates to take risks and tackle challenges in life with "moxie -- a mixture of being bold, fearless and a little outrageous," and recounted times in her career when she was able to get doors to open for her with such an approach. Sunday marked the first time that Commencement Convocation was held at the 11,500-seat Haas Pavilion. The event, traditionally held at the Greek Theatre, which seats 7,200, was relocated to accommodate a greater demand for tickets.
