Human communities depend upon a diversity of talent

"One of the real challenges is to innovate fundamentally in education. Innovation is hard because it means doing something that people don't find very easy, for the most part. It means challenging what we take for granted, things that we think are obvious. The great problem for reform or transformation is the tyranny of common sense; things that people think, 'Well, it can't be done any other way because that's the way it's done.'"

(Ken Robinson, February 2010)

Current TV: Gore's Broadcasting/Internet Hybrid

"Al Gore yesterday unveiled plans to launch a UK version of his 'user generated' network, Current TV, with the help of BSkyB, the pay–TV giant of which Rupert Murdoch is chairman. ... Internet networking sites such as MySpace and video sharing services such as YouTube and Google Video have forced broadcasters to learn from them. ...

Mr Gore said the launch of a localised version of Current TV in the UK next spring was the first step in taking the network global. The schedule, made up of 'pods' of between five seconds and 15 minutes, averaging four minutes, is also dictated by viewers via the internet.

The dramatic growth in video blogging sites like YouTube has been cited as a key influencing factor in the development of Al Gore and James Murdoch's recent Internet/broadcasting hybrid called Current TV."
