On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links βœ¨πŸ€“βœ¨

Generation Z will outnumber Millennials by 2019 weforum.org/agenda/2018/08… via @wef
As per the report "#India's Gen Z population rise to 472 million next year, 51 percent more than #China’s projected 312 million"
"Key differentiating factor between #GenZ versus #millenials is an element of self-awareness versus self-centeredness"
GenZ naturally seek their own solutions and can quickly detect whether or not something is relevant to them. #selfaware, #selfreliant #innovative

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the β˜€οΈπŸ“šπŸ“ #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 πŸ“–

I'm not sure why this is shocking some people.

Many of these #GenZ children are younger than popular social media platforms.

Personally, I love the idea of being able to access which programs other kids are involved.

As a parent of an elementary school-aged child, I know from personal experience how much is spread by word of mouth.

These are the new "rites of passage" in the digital age.

I suggest that black parents, especially, stay up-to-date and expose your child to as much as possible.
Too often, our children are late to the game, late to get the memo and then are made to feel inadequate or unprepared because of it.

It carries on through college.

This is not an opinion, btw.
