I caught the opening ceremonies of the World Creativity Forum held at the Cox Convention Center this morning. The above video was captured with a Canon 7D and I used the audio from the camera in the highlights part. The outside standup used the Zoom H1N for audio.
I wish I could have stayed all day, although I did return to interview “Russian Sam” this evening. I’ll try to carve up that video later tonight. Ilia Shvetcov has a great story. And thanks to Casey Cornett for his input.
But I couldn’t stay all day, had matters back at the office. The lineup of the Creativity Forum was packed with interesting people and I only heard the first 90 minutes of this morning’s session. Listening to people like Sir Ken Robinson, John Herrington, David Pogue and others speak is inspiring.
A couple of notes: the event is well staffed. Lots of youth in red t-shirts willing to help, guide and answer questions. And the parking at the Santa Fe Garage was remarkably cheap ($3 this morning, $2 this evening) and convenient.
And below is Sir Ken Robinson in his own words: what is the World Creativity Forum and its purpose.
