Another great RSA talk by Sir Ken Robinson animated, it’s well worth the 11 minutes to watch. It’s hardly a secret how poor the education system really is and how many it fails.
I should note the intro video on his website has perhaps one of the greatest quotes I’ve heard in a while: “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original”.
About a week ago I linked to a video called the secret powers of time, here’s another from the RSA series titled Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us by Dan Pink. Another really interesting 10 minute look at the psychology that drives us.
I’m starting to become addicted to this series.
Professor Philip Zimbardo on how your perspective of time impacts pretty much everything in life and how it’s fundamentally changing thanks to technology. There’s been a lot of talk about this lately.
I guess this is pretty much the idea behind his book The Time Paradox. I guess I should add that to my list of books to read if I can ironically ever find the time.
