I'm so glad we're recognizing the importance of play for our social and work interactions! Have you come across ways that companies are building play into their cultures?

Dave - have you read "The Imagination Challenge"?

You might really enjoy it.

Hi Speeker,

We are trying to do it at XPLANE, with something we call Visual Thinking School -- two hours a week to focus on improving our skills in a play-like setting.

We also have set aside 10% of each person's time for self-defined innovation projects. I understand Google does the same, and there are probably many others.

Ryan, No I have not; sounds interesting though, I might need to check it out.

2 hours of VTS and another 10% sounds like a really good mix! I'm starting to work on getting some similar stuff going over here.
