Sci-Fi Heroes With Supernatural Powers and Gen-Y Problems

A rather tepid review of NBC's "Heroes" from the NY Times.com The third season of this fun fantasy is getting beat up in its' third season. The review has decent highlights of character/plot interpretation unfortunately the battle of the network generation is a near miss at best.

The brief animated short that plays when the title gets a double click is more "is it me or is this the most bizarre election year ever?" than any slam, statement or expressional of life as a political super hero



Enjoy!

Seven Stages of Creativity
I remember discovering that creativity or the creative process is a discipline rather than a couple of good A-HA moments followed by the flow of creation.
I like the form and content in David Ulriche's' brief overview of the stages of creativity.-- (Click red above for more)

Career Advice from a Comic Book
Daniel Pink unleashed a Conceptual Age book in his new publication "The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Book You Will Ever Need" Click on the blue title to see a review from Business Week.

I like the article because it describes the unique features of a business book( the first of its' kind) done in the Japanese comic genre Manga. The article does not quite "get it" as it asked for specific career tips rather than bask in the wisdom and symbolic interpretation that any great mythic adventure provides.

Head over to www.JohnnyBunko.com for info, suprises and a preview -- Than buy a book for a friend or colleague.

Future Jobs: College Grads Need Not Apply


Depending on where you read "the economy" or The Economy" is re-open for job seekers or a workers wasteland getting worse. I see both as true as we grapple with making decisions in a new era of built for speed and the vocational change artist. I appreciate the vivid depiction that Al Fin delivers in a strong tone. It is not pleasant to witness the pain & confusion that many refer to as "The Anxiety Age", though it is even worse to imagine our world without the big dose of possibility that change activates.
