"Nyskap", creativity and more...

It's Friday. Looking for something to watch during the weekend? Then watch this! (The videos are in Swedish though...)

I just found this lecture on YouTube. Fredik Härén from speaks about the changing world.

All in all there's five videos. Shall be watched in sequence. It is actually two separate talks at the same event. The first talk is in video #1 and 1 min 50 secs into the second. From that on the second, longer, talk starts. But if you start watching the first I am sure you will continue through them all. A good speaker!

Some related notes before we jump into the show:

  • Fredik uses a newlish Swedish word; "nyskap". It's a word game based on the Swedish words kunskap [knowledge] and ny [new]. So far it might be translated into "newledge". However in Swedish we also have the word nyskapande [to create something new]. Anyone have a good suggestion for a new English word along these lines? (Also note that there is a web site called - as of today just one screen as it seems.)

  • While browsing YouTube to find all parts of the lecture I noticed that SvT (the Swedish television) has a YouTube channel. I must admit I had missed that. I knew about the SvT Play initiative, where a large selection of the archive is made available over the Internet. I didn't know that SvT uses YouTube as a channel.

Now, here's the videos. Enjoy!
