The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever
I realize I am liking more and more these type of videos, I think I am a visual learner. Now, this one really got me on minute [7:33] where he mentions about divergent thinking, this is something I’ve struggled for a long time because sometimes I wish I was not a divergent thinker considering the way the world sometimes moves.
…its about standarization. I believe we need to go in the exact opposite direction, that’s what I mean in changing the paradigm. There is a great study done recently on divergent thinker … isn’t the same thing as creativity, I define creativity as the process of having original ideas that have value. Divergent thinking is not a synonym but its an essential capacity for creativity. Its the ability to see lots of possible answers to a question… to think not just in linear or convergent ways, to see multiple answers not one.
I absolutely love this video!!
The way these videos are done really helps to keep my attention on the message, not to mention that this is an interesting way to promote a book or at least decribe what a book or topic is about.
