Discuss what you learn from Poundstone’s report on the way job interviewing processes have changed recently. Based on what we have studied so far about creativity, how does Poundstone’s report fit or not fit into the way we’ve been thinking about creative process?

Thank you for your post this week, its always nice having the blog post up in order to get the view points of others. I liked that you were going into the structure of the readings this week. I agree when you mentioned “I can know Sun Ra is a person who like challenge himself and I think the creation is the result of being curious and facing the difficulties”. I also thought that, that he challenges himself in order to create other pieces of music in order to teach in order to keep the world from being ignorant, like Sun Ra mentioned on the sixth chapter of “The Aim of My Composition”. I learned new things while reading your post, about the structure. I wasn’t even thinking about it, you did a good job.
Respond to what interests you about this piece in terms of form and meaning, its “how” and its “what.” How is what he’s saying effected by the way he writes it? Also, what connections can you make to the dreams unit or other theories of creativity we’ve looked at thus far? Finally, you could include a link to a video of a Sun Ra performance that you think we should watch in class and explain why. Pose two debatable questions.
