Zeitgeist Creativity

Quit school, stay creative (this is what I've done, three times). Ok, don't quit.

Make sure you watch this — it's one of those speeches able to shift your perspective. No slides.

Thank you, Mihai.

George:

I've seen this talk many times, most of the TED talks can shift perspectives ;)

Now, while I can appreciate the "conservation" of creativity (you're born with it, you don't develop it - according to Picasso and Robinson) I do not agree with letting your kids do whatever they want at a young age. I believe that they should be pushed into doing more activities but they should make a decision when they're older. Quick example, when I was 6 my mother "forced" me to take piano lessons. I hated that... until I had to play the piano in front of a few hundred (maybe thousand) people who at the end just stood up in ovation. My point is that I was good at something I didn't like initially and I would have never discovered it if I wasn't pushed. And I think kids need to be pushed, this whole "let the kids do whatever they want" crap is a North American stupidity.

On another note, arts, dance and music have all enhanced our lives but the fundamentals of life and how it is today is entirely based on science, technology and evolution. I would add to the talk that creativity has to be encouraged in sciences as well.
