Tim Brown of IDEO had a short interview with NPR, reviewing what he saw as an opportunity to improve the 'skills gap' in the US. By having people learn through tacit/explicit learning, we can build a more capable workforce, and enable new careers.
The beauty of this to me is that it's a community investment. To take unskilled, and make them skilled, without costly colleges that don't always promise a job. The process of learning is therefore tighter wound in the feedback loop between learning and productive outcome. It's a little strange to add Tim Brown as inspiration to an IDEO project, I thought it might spark more concepts to add it. Its about the concept, and how we can reapply this logic as needed.
