“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Sir. Ken Robinson on education & creativity (TED2006)

I first heard this presentation at Connecting2007.org. It was my favorite for oh so many reasons. One of the best presenters without slides it caused me to think deeply about the practice of presentation and storytelling and teaching, but more importantly his topic hit home deeply as I’ve often been someone drawn to the creative always feeling just outside of creativity.

If you have a child, I would ask that you listen to this presentation and realize that creativity is so much more than personal expression, but is a powerful part of our intelligence that would make us all better and more powerful if it were maintained and even cherished.
