200 Years of History in 4 Minutes?

       I’m a corporate trainer by profession; when somebody doesn’t know what that is, I just tell them that I teach big kids.  So I’m interested in new techniques for delivering information in an interesting and entertaining manner.  I think I’ve found it, and you have got to see this! 

       It’s a video of Dr. Hans Rosling explaining the history of life expectancy over the last 200 years.  But it’s not a boring lecture.  It’s not Death by PowerPoint.  It is the use of high-tech tools to deliver an interesting and powerful presentation.  I won’t try to explain any more; you’ve got to see it for yourself at http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thelookout/watch-200-years-of-history-in-5-minutes. Enjoy!

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my website, http://www.randolphmase.com.  In the near future (in the next week, I hope!), I’ll have excerpts of my books that you can read, accessible on my site.  You can get a sneak preview at http://randymase.com – designed by my son Don.  Please check it out! 

And to view updated blogs in real-time, go to http://alphainventions.com or http://blogiche.com – they’re both great sites!
