Sir Ken Robinson has famously spoken about the terrible lack of creativity in educational and intellectual society and institutions. He jokes with some degree of black humor that watching a disco full of Ph.D’s is to watch a group of disembodied heads, lacking a sense of kinesthetic, artistic and social/emotional competencies. He castigates our educational systems as too heavily dedicated to the cortex and weighted mainly to the left (linear and logical).

As I see it,an aspect of this problem is that schools don’t do enough production; meaning there isn’t much in the way of helping kids apply theoretical knowledge; they hardly ever build or produce anything. If teachers knew how to do this and students made and produced things, actual useful things (and this can include artistic expressions too), you would see an immediate and corresponding rise in self worth and self efficacy, which is the belief in the value of one’s efforts to accomplish.

Watch this favorite video of mine at another TED Talk, with the genius of the Handspring Puppet Company . Imagine the math, physics and design attributes that these brilliant guys and their “puppets” represent application of.

Bourbon authority, Veach, explains in Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage, how bourbon went from "low-brow to top shelf."

There are hundreds of books that cover HTML, JavaScript, Java, and Marketing, but few that put it all together. That’s where Poor Richard’s Web Site comes in. This book provides "Geek-Free, Commonsense Advice on Building a Low-Cost Web Site". Best selling author Peter Kent walks you through the entire process of setting up a site on the internet and promoting it.

Part II of the book covers the design of the site, including a quick overview of HTML, setting up autoresponders, choosing an authoring tool and creating an effective website. You’ll learn how to lead your visitors through your site, how to make it easy for them to move around, as well as how to avoid overwhelming the visitors to your site and more. I especially liked the advice that said "Think USEFUL not Cool," as it is a mistake that many on the Internet make and most website design books propagate.

Part III provides an extensive overview of website promotion. You’ll learn how to survey the internet for locations where prospects who would be interested in your site hang out, about search engines and directories, press releases, real world PR, tracking traffic and much more. The book ends with two checklists, one covering Webhosting and the second one about promotion.
