My husband, the dear man, shared with me a TEDtalk video yesterday, which just blew my socks off. It was of Sir Ken Robinson, a leading expert on innovation and human resources. Here, he speaks of the flaws of today’s archaic education systems worldwide that focus on providing human capital for the present (or the past?) instead of the future, and how creativity is being educated out of our children. He is an articulate, hilarious speaker. Entertaining and enlightening.

As some of you may know, TED is the yearly Technology, Entertainment and Design conference for 1,000 of the cleverest people in the world. Tickets are always sold out. Thankfully, we can now watch some of these luminaries speak online.

So sit back, watch, and learn.
