Need some mid-summer inspiration?

| June 24, 2011

The summer solstice may just have occurred, but to me it sure feels as if the summer has been full swing for a while now. Maybe you’re taking some summer classes or working on your thesis or dissertation and could use a little inspiration. Or maybe the mid-summer doldrums have struck, and you’re trying to wake up your brain from a few weeks’ slumber. These videos are for you!

The first video by Sir Ken Robinson has gone viral in the recent past, but most of the others were heretofore unbeknownst to me. In particular I look forward to watching the Clay Shirky video, which seems to be based upon his recent influential book, “Cognitive Surplus.”

Have you watched any of these videos? Thoughts, comments, questions, objections?
