Right-brainers (the creative set) to rule next century

Okay, this isn't really a science story. It's an Oprah story. But it's interesting. Recently, Daniel Pink, author of "A Whole New Mind," spoke with Oprah about the dawning of the "conceptual age" where "right-brained skills such as design and storytelling will become far more crucial than traditionally left-brained skills such as accounting and computer programming." (CNN)

Why? Left-brained skills (accounting, computer programming) can be outsourced, of course. But creativity can't. At least that's what Pink says.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
