Authors, comic artists, rappers, porn site creators – we need outside-the-box thinking in many professions these days.

Startups celebrate outside-the-box thinking, too, which is perhaps why the personalities below are all so popular with the tech crowd. Expand your mind a bit this weekend and check out our interviews with Tim Ferriss, Matthew Inman, Chris Guillebeau, Jermaine Dupri, and Cindy Gallop.
