I am looking forward to:


  México Watch

When Andrés Manuel López Obrador ran for office, he promised to rid México of corruption, reduce the crazy murder rate, and replace technocratic, market-friendly policies with actions that put the “poor and forgotten” first. How’s that working out?

  What I’m Up To...

I have almost nothing but good news to report. My physical therapy has ended, and my back is completely healed. Life looks a lot better when you are not in pain.
If you’ve been following the news, you know that the situation in Haïti continues to deteriorate. I had thought that this flare-up would subside, at least to a tolerable level. Sadly, it has not, giving me no choice but to abandon the projects I have worked on, until I can figure out an alternative. It is a heart-breaking problem, with no end — and no relief — in sight.



I am kicking back my MOOCs to only two in July.
I will stay with smaller numbers of participants.
As always, all materials are provided; there are no fees. Large-scale MOOCs, if you will excuse the redundancy, embody everything that is bad about Distance Learning, which is bad enough to begin with. This fall, I will rerun my most popular MOOCs, all updated with new material:
  Agile: New Business Creation
  Speed: The Misplaced Virtue
  Blockchain, Bitcoin & the Future of Trust
  The No-Nonsense Job Hunt
  Cyber War
  Why Your On-Line Strategy Will Continue to Fail — And How You Can Prevent It

Live an amazing life! Decide to learn, to create, and to do more — today. Use technology to do things that were unimaginable yesterday. Never settle on the things that matter. Lighten up on the things that don’t.

 Cool Stuff in Wayne’s World...

Innovation Project

 Innovation Project

Mission: Integrate innovation into the curriculum. I have been teaching individual creativity and corporate innovation since 2005. Everyone wants it; no one wants to work for it. I can change that.

 Distance Learning Project

Mission: Make distance learning as good as — or better than — one-on-one tutoring, by any pedagogical standard. Am I there yet? No — but I can reliably beat every platform on the market. Want to see how?

 Emerging Business Paradigm

Mission: Re-think business and business education. All you know about business is wrong. All you know about business is right. This apparent paradox drives the Emerging Business Paradigm. Want to know more?

 The Music Project

Mission: Getting to the stage was going to be easy. Not so much. Whenever I think I’ve made progress, I hear the Precision Guided Thinkers jeering, and it’s da capo al fine.

 Change the World

Mission: Make a real difference. Change the world. A little ambitious? Yes. Impossible? Probably. Completely nuts? I won’t disagree. But if we don’t try, who will?

 The Writing Project

Mission: Thank-you, Donald Kaul, who taught me when to write; Professor Richard Freed, who taught me how to write; Anne Lamott, who taught me why to write, and my fellow Yalie, Tom Wolfe, who taught me not to write.
Two of my short stories, “Dreamweaver,” and “RAF,” were recently featured in the Mensa Bulletin. My first book of poetry, 53 Poems from Calibania, will be published just in time for Christmas.
