Continuing the quest to uncover those hidden gems of brilliant content, methods, tools and getting them into the light: In business, education, human development, art, community outreach, and all conceivable endeavors, … all the projects described here are part of this, and in service of this effort. Sometimes, I find them, sometimes they find me. Some further examples:
The “Peak Purpose” program from Pikes Peak Learning, my other company, about career planning, life purpose, and answering the questions, “Who Am I, Where Am I Going, How Will I Get There?” The content, assessments, planning tools, rich databases, and entire process was developed by Sam Kirk of Sam Kirk and Associates of Denver, longtime career counselors for individuals and corporations. Sam is now retired, and a few years ago, we adapted his pencil-and-paper programs for online, interactive – where they’ve helped thousands of youth and adults across the U.S.
In the early days of the web, I led the teams that created Hewlett-Packard’s “Educator’s Corner” – a web site that still exists 16 years later, serving content, education, community, equipment, and news for engineering students, universities, professors, departments, and engineering education initiatives around the world. We were doing cloud computing, social media, and making new innovative content before anyone knew what those were!
