The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.
Great lecture by Jon Cleese on Creativity (this is a trimmed version).
Quiet, space and time = environment for creativity
I am considering how I can block out time each week for this. Much to consider from this video!
Ran across this new book by Austin Kleon (thanks to Jesse Oxford) entitled: Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative. Fascinating stuff – I am going to have to pick this up! Here is a a taste:
I found this intereseting infographic about effects of Social Media. I believe that there are some huge changes going on in us as a result of social media. I have noticed a change in myself. I am not sure about some of the validity of the statistics on this infographic, but it certainly raises some good discussion. What do you think?
I ran across an online interactive learning experience call SPENT. It puts you in the shoes of an unemployed, single parent, facing financial crisis. You are given the task of making it through 1 month on a very small budget. That budget gets added to / subtracted from as you make various decisions about healthcare, employment, grocery shopping, etc.
This is a perfect example to me of a new category of learning. Rather than presenting me with a list of information, I am asked to interact, make choices and engage in a story. As I have an experience, I use my imagination to place myself into another story. I don’t feel marketed to, yet I care about the cause of this organization. I am inspired to dream and create new approaches like this.
