Science: Jonah Lehrer: How Creativity Works

I will definately be at this one. Jonah was a big inspiration for me. Will send details later about meeting up in advance. At Town Hall: Monday, April 9, 2012, 7:30 – 9:00pm Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. $5. Forget muses and creative “types”; Jonah Lehrer says creativity isn’t one lucky gift, but a variety of thought processes we all can learn. Called “something of a popular science prodigy,” by The New York Times, the author of the bestsellers Proust Was A Neuroscientist and How We Decide and the new Imagine, explores the science of creativity—brainstorming meetings are a terrible idea, for example, and the color blue can double your creative output—to reveal the deep inventiveness of the human mind and its essential role in our increasingly complex world. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU. Advance tickets are $5 at Brown Paper Tickets or 800/[masked] and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. LEARN MORE: www.johahlehrer.com http://townhallseattl...

    This was great. Jonah's talk was excellent, and it was wonderful to meet 3 new group members, Diane, Tokiwa and Tova at the Sorrento Hotel beforehand. And, good to see Archis again too. Hope to see you all again soon. I highly recommend Jonah's new book if you are interesting in Creativity.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
