Friday Fun: Play with Ted

How long is your attention span? Mine is about, oh, 30 seconds. On a focused day. So, ordinarily, I wouldn't suggest anyone watch a longish video.

But, now and then, it's good to sit back, relax and learn. This weekend, check out the TED video on creativity with Tim Brown, the CEO of Ideo. (The CEO of Ideo. Now, there's a title with a ring to it.)

If you're not in the mood for the video, use the link as a jumping off point, and explore TED. Lots of fascinating clips. Enjoy!

For those of us who have great reverence for the printed word and prefer it to video, click here for a written interview with Tim Brown of IDEO.

OK, that's the best laugh I had all day, Mr. "Print is Dead" Brown.

And, since I haven't yet followed my own advice and watched the long video, I will go READ the written interview. With great reverence.

P.S. Here's a bonus creativity tip: Have at least one person on your creative team who's good at razzing you -- and making you laugh.
