And lastly…. yes, it seems the single post turned into double post…. then triple…. now quad post.
But the clips were just too well presented in this creative format… making what would usually be, while interesting to listen to, possible boring to listen to at the same time…. more interesting with a creative presentation of the lecture.
Another creative presentation…. in the same manner of the previous post. This time it centers on Education and just how modern schools in their institutionalization methods… kill creativity. Sir Ken Robinson gives the very enlightening lecture… and is again presented in a rather creative way as before.
Double post here today it seems!
After viewing the John Cleese lecture clip (in previous post)… I began looking for other parts to this fascinating lecture, but to no avail. But, what I did find were many other clips that explored the processes of Creativity. Below is a clip from Steven Johnson’s exploration into the matter, presented in a rather… creative way.
Recently, I have been undergoing some pretty drastic changes… as many have within the current U.S. economy. In finding myself in this situation, I have been seemingly off on several creative tangents… dabbling within this area or this particular media, as well as other areas and media in attempts to ‘get things going’ in light of this situation. Having posted before with the title having a reference to Monty Python’s “And now for something completely different…” segue, I visited some clips from the from the famous show on YouTube. This of course being in the midst of ‘getting things going’, mind you.
While watching some of the clips from the show, which always helps to just get your mind loose, laughing and out of the box… I cam upon this clip of John Cleese, but it was not to do with Monty at all. It is a clip of Mr. Cleese giving a lecture, broken up into the main points for time it seems, about Creativity. Watching this, I was not only intrigued as to the very non-comical nature of Mr. Cleese in such a platform… but even more so by what he spoke about, with the process and ability (or inability) to be creative along with ways to recognize the process of creativity.
Enjoy the clip, and I will be looking for more of this lecture… and posting if I can.
Hello and welcome!
The cork has popped, the ship is underway, and blog has finally made it’s way onto my computer. Well… not blogs in general, as I have partaken my share of them quite a bit, but my own version of it anyway. Not at all completely different…. to coin Monty Python, but a new adventure (or is it just venture?) for me nonetheless.
Will post more as soon as R2 gets the hyper-drive working…
