My interest in blogging grew out of my interest in Integral Theory and its application to various problems that affect the planet.   Learning to view these problems according to the Integral Model is the first step in creating effective solutions.   I use this blog in my profession as a project manager to help run study groups for those who are preparing for project management certification exams.  I am a firm believer in lifelong learning and would also like to use this blog as a thoughtspace for notes on the various great courses from the Teaching Company as well as lessons learned from my experience as a Toastmaster.

  1. Really like your posts on Integral Theory — v much the way I think.

    • I’ve been following your discussions on the situation in Syria and that is an excellent example of a global problem which requires different perspectives in order to come up with an effective solution.

  7. Hi – I can tell just a little more about that Rod Serling appearance at Sherwood Oaks in Hollywood in 1975. I arrived in L.A. in 1980 and was thrilled to almost immediately visit SOEC (then in a small, former production site on Las Palmas just south of Sunset Boulevard.) I soon got to know Gary Shuset and the odd assortment of characters that hung out at the small school. Anyway, some years later after Rod Serling died, Gary posted a tribute to him online. Back in 1975 the school was upstairs on the north side of Hollywood Boulevard. (Just a few doors from a porno theater near Vine.) He wrote how the school was almost out of money, but somehow he got Rod Serling to come and speak. He put signs up all over, and had no idea how it would go. Anyway, when Rod Serling spoke, I think he said they had over 300 people who paid to see him and it was standing room only, and he said that appearance saved the school. (At least for a few years – it was pretty much gone by around 1985 or so.) Sadly, Gary died a few years ago. He helped many people start their careers, but personally lived on the fringes of Hollywood for most of his adult life. I am currently going through Season One on DVD and just hit that episode you discussed;.
