TEDxConstitutionDrive 2012 - Danil Kozyatnikov - "Distinctiveness as a tool for success"

Our 2012 theme was "Identity" This year we explored Identity in a way that went beyond the standard gender/race/age lines. We see Identity as the non-genetic DNA of us, one that is co-created by our environments and ourselves, and which drives in a powerful way our choices, our relationships and our lives. Speakers as diverse as Eric Drooker, New Yorker artist, to Beau Lewis, producer of the American Hipster series, to John Murray, scientist at the SRI International labs, came to share their perspectives on Identity. Danil Kozyatnikov, founder of Quest.li and enabler of real-life quests Danil is a CEO and Founder of Questli. He was born and raised in the middle of nowhere -- a small town at the edge of Siberia where no English is spoken. He faced many obstacles on his journey from Angarsk to Silicon Valley, including knowing absolutely no one in the industry, but by the time Danil received his Engineering degree in Computer Science and Applied Math from Novosibirsk State Technical University, he already ran a social gaming company with nine employees. His English is the product of sheer focus and concentration over nine months at the University of San Diego. Danil has "never thought about getting a job" because he looks forward to running his own companies and generating new ideas.
