Interview with Christopher Stapleton, Creative Venture Catalyst | Entertainment Designer

I grew up loving learning and hating school. We have limited our imaginations so much, and our education system has limited how we develop imaginative and innovative thinking. It’s not a matter of making education game-like. The term “edutainment” is like “dinner theater” – while I love dinner, and I love theater, put them together and it’s not really a great dinner and it’s not great theater either. You should be able to combine the two to make it more than the sum of the parts.

Analog Artist Digital World: The Human Library

Mon, 02/13/2012 - 17:40 -- rprice

I checked out Ryan Price who spoke to me about Open Innovation. Netflix offered a one million dollar prize to anyone who could improve the types of movie suggestions offered by 10%. Coders from around the world collaborated to solve the problem. In the end Netflix got more than it bargained for. The results were raised by more than 10%. Ryan is helping organize a Drupal Camp where participants hack for a cause. Hack is another way of saying modifying code. Not all hacking is evil.
