How Much Data is Created Every Minute an infographic Every minute massive amounts of it are being generated phone, website application across the Internet.

 

...I don’t anticipate the growth of data slowing down in my lifetime. There’s too much goodness to be mined from it all.

I have always known that play is a child's work. An excerpt from this article suggests that adults need to play more! (Try explaining that one to your boss :-) 'Without play, he said, ‘‘there’s a sense of dullness, lassitude and pessimism, which doesn’t work well in the world we live in.’’ '

But what’s all the rush, why do we feel like time is running out or moving faster than we can manage? Why are some of the most talented and intelligent professionals, especially those I meet in traditional publishing, running around as if there hair is literally on fire? What has changed so dramatically in the past decade? And what messages are we, as adults, passing onto our little ones when we seem so distracted by all these ‘shiny new devices’ appearing everywhere in our lives these days? Are we worried? YES! Do we know how to handle it? NO!

Where Creativity Comes From

Where Creativity Comes From | Learn to love learning! | Scoop.it

Connie Anderson's insight:

"I'd give my left ear for a DAM beer!" Little did this genius of a man know that his gifts of art to the world would become a marketing success and a source of income to so many hard-working, honest people who are capitalizing on the story of his life. Artists don't ask why they create - they just do. The need to create, to express one's feelings, to discover beauty and truth are innate. They are rooted in the mystery of the soul.
