    March 31, 2015

  8. TDC1176: Talk to a stranger

    March 29, 2015

    “So when an elderly woman directed a comment at him about all the trash on the street — the kind of thing most of us nod at vaguely and tune out — he engaged. Another student was more impulsive, striking up a conversation with the woman in front of him at a post office. (Surprisingly, it turned out she regularly goes out of her way to reach this notably busy station, because she likes the staff.) “She was the nicest person that I’ve met in New York,” he reported.” from Medium HT John Johnston Tell us the story!

  12. TDC1171: A 15 second create

    March 24, 2015

    Draw a 15-second Batman. From our friends at Open Culture, “You have the ability to create a recognizable Batman because Batman’s basic shape is universally agreed upon, much like that of a car or a cat. Whether you know it or not, you have internalized that basic shape. This alone confers a degree of proficiency. As proof of that, Barry would ask you to draw him in 15 seconds. A time constraint of that order has no room for fretting and self doubt. Only frenzied scribbling. It also levels the playing field a bit. At 15 seconds, a novice’s Batman can hold his own against that of a skilled draftsperson. Try it. Did you get pointy ears? A cape? A mask of some sort? Legs? I’ll bet you did.” Upload your photo to flickr and tag it dailycreate and tdc1171
