Get Inspired

Sir Ken Robinson is the most well spoken and inspiring speaker I've ever experienced. I saw him speak at Connecting 07 and was blown away. I wasn't the only one who thought so, because he got a standing ovation. The energy he exudes when speaking is worth seeing him in person. If you haven't seen him yet, watch this video.

Agreed on Ken Robinson. I'm jealous that you were able to hear him in person. I saw his video on TED and was extremely impressed.

What he has to say about education is very enlightening; not just for trying to solve the problem but bringing awareness to those who knew there was a problem but couldn't pinpoint what it was ("The hierarchy is written on two ideas, number one that the most useful subjects were at the top... And the second is academic ability, which is already coming to dominate our view of intelligence... And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant people think they're not.").
