Don’t Kill Creativity

I truthfully could not tell you how in the world this video ended up on my computer. As a matter of fact, somehow it managed to replace all of my old podcasts, like CNN’s daily news and whanot. Somehow, all of them disappeared, and this video (from over two years ago) appeared out of nowhere. So, while I haven’t the slightest idea where it came from, I decided that I should watch it, because it had an intriguing title, one that I had been in support of for quite a long time.

The point of this video (entitled “Do Schools Kill Creativity?”) is all about how public school systems, though probably not intentionally, stifle creativity. I had been thinking that same thing.

Anyway, it’s a really stellar thing to watch. The man is very intelligent and speaks qutie a bit of what steps could be taken to resolve that issue. Anyway, if you get the chance, I suggest that you watch it. No, really, do. Find the time.

  1. Hey, Russ. Thanks for posting the pictures from Jon’s wedding! I have put some on my blog (giving you credit, of course).

    Could you let me know what the name of the DVD ripper program you use? I have now downloaded 3, and can’t get any of them to work. With the last one I tried I was able to rip in the movie and got it in my iTunes, but then it wouldn’t play. I thought I was close – disappointing…
