Here’s a good, long string of videos I’ve been watching. I hope you’ll enjoy a few.
Two important lessons to learn.
The story of Admiral Rickover’s tenacity and courage against a bureaucracy to create something great and lasting, as told by a young girl for history day.
Listen for the part about conceptual blending.
And, here’s the Children’s Party story video if you haven’t seen it already.
Now, this video captures why I’ve so enjoyed learning more about Dave Snowden’s work: his interest in pulling patterns from stories. I love to do that in my own low-tech, low-theory way and then share with people what I think the story patterns are saying. I’m truly excited for what I can do if I pair my interest with Snowden’s true skill.
The video is long, but you’ll be hooked within the first few minutes. I had a conversation around the first 50 seconds of this conversation earlier today. Watch at least through the recipe followers versus chef example. If you can get through the first 15 minutes you’ll be stirred to much new thinking and be ready to post comments I’m sure.
