Innovation Excellence | What Does Emotional Intelligence have to do with Productivity and Innovation? | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Elon Musk, much like Steve Jobs, couples his drive and ingenuity with a fluid charm and charisma, making him and leaders of his caliber something like the Ubermensch. The amount of things that people like these accomplish might even make the common person wonder if they’re robots--but it turns out they may actually be even more human than the rest of us.

A rare interview with the mind that transformed technology ... twice

A rare interview with the mind that transformed technology ... twice | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Linus Torvalds transformed technology twice -- first with Linux, which helps power the Internet, and again with Git, the source code management system used by coders worldwide. In a rare interview with TED's curator, Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique philosophy of work, engineering and life. "I am not a visionary, I'm an engineer," Torvalds says. "I'm perfectly happy with all the people who are walking around and just staring at the clouds ... but I'm looking at the ground, and I want to fix the pothole that's right in front of me before I fall in."

The Power of Visual Storytelling: How One Student Turned Her Thesis into a Comic Book

The Power of Visual Storytelling: How One Student Turned Her Thesis into a Comic Book | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
A chemistry Ph.D. student wanted to make her thesis more accessible to her friends and family, so she turned it into a comic book.

Kathy Klotz-Guest's curator insight, April 8, 2:59 PM

I love this article. It never says “visual storytelling” in the piece; yet, that is exactly what this is. A science student was asked by her thesis advisor, “How would you explain science to someone who doesn’t know science?” This student answered the call artistically by creating a comic book. It worked well, and she raised the money to produce it with a Kickstarter campaign. Here is why I love her idea so much – it gets to the heart of what great storytelling is. Great storytelling simplifies the complex by turning it into a visceral story people “get.” Every organization should ask itself the following question that prompted this student to come with her visual story: “How would you explain your business to someone who doesn’t know your business?” If all branding, marketing and storytelling practitioners would ask that question, we’d all be better off. So here’s to better (visual) storytelling for all. And who doesn't love a great comic book?! I know I do.
