Monthly Research Papers
I have a lot of varied interests: art, memory, cooking, judo, typography, rock climbing, genetics, design, tea, sleep, quantum physics… the list goes on. I’ve decided it would be a good idea to focus on a given topic for 30 days, and then formalize/synthesize everything I’ve learned into a thesis paper. I think having the goal will help motivate me, and forcing myself to collect all the disparate info will help me retain it.
Obviously anything interesting I learn will be posted up here so ya’ll can enjoy the fruits of my mania.
My November topic will be Creativity. What is it? What are the biological components of creativity. How is it measured? Can it be increased? All these questions! I also really want to perform a study on the affects of caffeine on creativity. Anyone else smell a craigslist ad for volunteers?
If you’ve got any nagging questions regarding creativity, sound off in the comments and I’ll see what I can do about finding some answers.
I’ll continue to post on other topics, but stay tuned at the end of the month for a report on everything I’ve learned!
