Kierkegaard on the role of the poet in the World

“The poet is the genius of memory. He does nothing but recall what has been seen, admire what has been done. He visits every man’s door with song and speech, that all may admire the hero as he does. This is his humble work, his faithful service, his crowning glory.” – Søren Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling

Awesomeness and The Impossible Brief

so as I’d posted a few weeks ago; I’d written an entry to The Impossible Brief (http://www.theimpossiblebrief.com/); which is a platform for ideas with an aim to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. My entry was titled ‘The Museum of Man’; and made an appearance in Haaretz earlier this month. I’m quite chuffed about it.

Seth Godin, on the tribes we lead

Seth Godin argues the Internet has ended mass marketing and revived a human social unit from the distant past: tribes. Founded on shared ideas and values, tribes give ordinary people the power to lead and make big change. He urges us to do so.
