An idea worth spreading

Because computer interfaces are becoming increasingly more adapted to humans, the importance of having technical skills to be able to interact with or use a computer is becoming increasingly smaller. This is one of the reasons I think social skills will become increasingly more important in the future. Several kinds of theatre and drama-activities contribute a lot to these social skills, that's why they should be an integral part of all education.

I'm passionate about

Education, creativity, games, theatre, improvisation, forum theatre, simulation games, nonviolent communication, empathy

Universities

Erica Frenkel: The universal anesthesia machine
The design principles of this machine are a lot like the ones behind the designs of Marcin Jakubowski's Open Source Ecology http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/en/marcin_jakubowski.html . I guess open sourcing could be an interesting strategy for this machine too!

Leaving out Madonna due to the divine intervention, it is fun to see how the pop-kings take over the classics-king. :) http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=Elvis+Presley%2CMichael+Jackson%2CJohann+Sebastian+Bach&year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=10 (might the classics-king make a come-back in the coming decennia... Who knows...? What a cliffhanger! ) In the mean time I keep wondering why Aristotle was ignored in the 18th century: http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=Plato%2CSocrates%2CAristotle&year_start=1600&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=10 And what created the common interest in Newton and Julius Ceasar in the early 19th century, and more curiously, why did the interest in Newton decline after the 1850's while Julius Ceasar in the same period actually gained in interest? http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=Isaac+Newton%2C+Julius+Caesar&year_start=1600&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=10 (This is a lot of fun!! :) )

I definitely wouldn't have guessed that. :) And I like how Bach dwarfs the others: http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=beethoven%2Cwagner%2Cmozart%2Cchopin%2C+bach&year_start=1600&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=10 (might be related to the use of capitals and general occurrences of the surnames so I added first names here and left out Richard Wagner because I think it's a quite often used name in general: http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=Ludwig+van+Beethoven%2CWolfgang+Amadeus+Mozart%2CFr%C3%A9d%C3%A9ric+Chopin%2CJohann+Sebastian+Bach&year_start=1600&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=10 this gives a whole different view!

Punitive, Restorative: http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=punitive%2C+restorative&year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=3 This trend gives hope for the future. :)
