Whole Lives

in-manuscript book by Michael Strong on Educating Kids and Culture

some thoughts on shortening/focusing...

what is the goal of Writing A Book? more precisely, what

  • understanding of current reality do you want to spread

  • plan/hope for the future you want to spread

  • actions do you hope to see

some contents in the book

  • personal history of various educational institutions

    • these mostly communicate that humans (teachers, entrepreneurs) are messy things, and so it takes a serious FeedBack cycle to shake out the mistakes and hope that the rare success can be fed and grown

    • IMACS/DASH/FAST - see Exposing Young Kids To Science

  • reference to ILT/Internal Lineage Tradition which seems like Tai Chi but isn't

    • article - a Chinese philosophy-based study of movement and life-refinement, now with private students all over the country, each learning the living practice of the I Ching, as well as the ways of ConfucIus, MencIus and Lao Tzu


Update: this kinda-morphed into Be The Solution: How Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalists Can Solve All the Worlds Problems ISBN:0470450037

Aug'2011 update: he's revisiting the work...
