Beer and Ideas

At a site called Beer & Ideas, there is a video of Sir Ken Robinson at TED, talking about creativity and the future. Very entertaining and important.

The "beer and ideas" has triggered a fond memory. It reminds me of an undergraduate communication theory course, taught by Dave Davidson, circa 1975-77, where we would meet for class at the Olde Queens Tavern on Easton Avenue in New Brunswick, one of the most venerated watering holes on the Rutgers campus.

At the back corner table, in the dim light, with Dave's pipe smoke forming a haze over us, we would demolish pitchers of beer and slices of pizza, all the while exploring and generating ideas on ways to communicate more effectively in the world.

Blogs were still many years off in the future.
