Creativity with Elizabeth Gilbert

TED Blog

Fresh from TED2009, Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk. (Recorded February 2009 in Long Beach, California. Duration: 19:29.)

    Taught high school history in Miami for 33 years and saw a lot of bright, insightful and talented teens and am sure some of them will do or produce some very smart stuff. But for the majority I can not imagine how they will even get a job to support themselves. The present education systems has everyone on the college track and in Miami less than 10% of most graduating seniors go to college, many in that category quit at 16 and have no marketable skills. Ain’t nary no geniesouses arount here.
