"The Power of Pull" - John Seely Brown

Okay, so the live blogging for this fell through because there were no outlets in the venue and my battery is on its last legs. Sorry bout that...with that said, though, a couople of basic tenets were my takeways:

- If you are looking to succeed, you have to be willing to fail, fail, fail.
- Reverse mentoring is a great way for established authority to learn from the new workforce.
- The shelf-life of knowledge has become increasingly short, and the future increasingly uncertain.
- We should, perhaps, move away from teaching content and, instead, focus on teaching adaptibility.

All in all, nothing mind-blowingly innovative, but certainly a good listen with a few solid takeaways. Now, onto the Concurrent Sessions...
