“It’s always important to distinguish between chastity and impotence.” – Mae Jemison quoting molecular biologist and Nobel laureate Sydney Brenner

Jemison’s TED talk is only okay: she’s focused on big ideas, integrating art and science, breaking down the false dichotomy of analytical versus intuitive. But I wanted more specifics. What’s her vision for how to do this?

Better is Elizabeth Gilbert on the nature of genius and a new (old) way of looking at creativity.

And that led me to three videos from the UK that investigate kids’ ideas about creativity: do they see themselves as creative, what advice do they have for adults about creativity, and then – teachers, this time, not kids – how can we help adults nurture their own creativity?
