“Sorry, George, but the ‘Cone of Silence’ is the new future metaphor in town!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Remember that ‘canvas of creativity’ thing I mentioned yesterday? It went into hyperdrive this week in the home studio!
I’m on fire!
And I’m finding the ideas, the structure, the concepts, the story lines that help me deliver an engaged, interactive, humerous but content rich keynote style talk! My old stage used to be, in some cases, 400′ x 200′ or more. My new stage is 6′ x 12′. You’ve got to work with what you’ve got!
Want to see the ‘show?’ It’s already online at :
The photo? Get Smart! I grew up with this show – and when they need to share a secret, they went into the ‘cone of silence.’ Heck, they even had a portable version as seen in this photo. It’s the storyline for our future of the socially-distant economy!
Stories are important – for years, I’ve used George Jetson as my pal on stage, noting how so much of what they predicted for the future has already become true. And yet, I’m onto something with Get Smart. I’ve only just started to explore my creativity options, the metaphors to explore, the concepts to outline. Our future is happening fast, the studio is moving with it, and gosh, I’m having fun!
