An Annotation

This article is actually an interview or conversation between Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, and Thomas Friedman, author of The World is Flat.  It is a great discussion about the importance of “mashing” the left brain (rule-based SAT style thinking) and right brain (artistic, empathetic, story-telling, synthesizing) together to nurture curiosity, creativity, and passion.  They also discussed the growing importance of parenting and the burden the schools are bearing by trying to solve all of societies problems.
