Leftovers from today’s meeting

Here’s a link to Steven Johnson’s article about spark files, and here’s a longer video on Where Good Ideas Come From.

And here’s the Tulio Jarocki post that Tanner Christensen pointed to. You’ll find passages about the benefits of writing from Barack Obama, Charles Bukowski,  Shawn Blanc, and Franz Kafka. It’s definitely worth a look.

This came up in a conversation after the meeting, not at the meeting itself. Watch the video of the opening session of Syria peace talks and see what kind of impression Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Moallem creates. I think this is a vivid example of why speakers need to pay attention to their time limits.

And Friday’s Science Friday broadcast asked is Coding the Languageof the Digital Age and makes a nice addition to the discussion of technical literacy after our meeting on July 13.
