David hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

The Relentless Learner has become the most important person in the worldwide search for talent. How can we identify them?
Good answer. I was imagining a program, perhaps a database that industries had, vendor-neutral for whatever learning in transmitted (agnostic as to methods, approaches, tools etc.) where independent (aka relentless) learners could gain credits for their independent continuous learning and be acknowledged, track their credits, perhaps receive certificates for levels of learning, have emails sent to the people with whom they work to keep abreast of what they are learning, be able to have an eportfolio to show work, be in contact and learn from one another ... we have ALL that technology now but we have an analog 20th century imagination about how to put it to good use. Imagine if you were an employer looking for "talent" and you could look at a number of relentless learners who had earned a Gold Certificate in your field and related areas to help you form a Relentless Learner Team optimized for success. The resume shows what you did (a historical document) while a certificate of learning would be current and indicate what you can do.

Agreed. I was one of those kids that was always "daydreaming" and "not paying attention" to the boring lesson and was reading so much that i was literally chased out of the house by my dad. I was relentless and have remained so to this day. So there are people who managed to get past the stultifying system and stay relentless. Who are they? How do we identify and reward and support them? They will be the place where innovation and creation comes from. And we should decided now that No Child Left Behind means no child with the great overarching desire and will to learn has that "relentless learner" shackled and closely bound to the curiosity of only the things they want to consume.

Regina Dugan: From mach-20 glider to hummingbird drone
Thank heavens we're also as good if not better at the ways we heal and help one another! No one seems to be commenting upon the heart of the talk. To me it was about how the learning process (the caped and colorful kids) are born learner's and will always try until we teach them that the glass needs to be round, made of glass and can only be filled to the halfway mark. Gotta love the nerds who daydreamed in class and went on to innovate creations like the internet (re: Planck's Principle). And it's not what they created it's the way the rest of us enabled how it is used. Love the imagination that has the hummingbirds flying through the barrel of a tank and freaking out the crew - sounds like a great idea for a video game.
