Sorry about the lack of post last Wednesday--I was busy doing an intern-y thing: Purging the Teen Tix Member database of faulty email addresses (revealed by hundreds of bounceback responses to a Teen Tix Newsletter). About 600 email addresses, 8 hours, and one beautiful week later, I emerge victorious and return to blogging (thank goodness)... but how is this important to you? If you aren't getting the weekly newsletter (and your spam filter isn't at fault),update your Teen Tix member information! Here's how:
- Email Teen Tix and let us know your name and correct emailaddress and we'll fix it.
Easy, right?? (Just don't re-register for Teen Tix.) There’s no reason to delay: you get all the information about what’s going on once a week; you get one email per week—no spam; Teen Tix would never dream of selling (or giving away) your email address.
In other news, Newsweek featured an article this week about creativity. The article (by Po Bronson & Ashley Merryman, and which can be found here) says that “Since , creativity scores have consistently inched downward.” Art and creativity tend to go hand-in-hand (though art isn’t the only place we use or need creativity), so what does this mean for the Teen Tix-ers of the future? And what does it mean for the world when “a recent IBM poll of 1,500 CEOs identified creativity as the No. 1 ‘leadership competency’ of the future”?
I don’t mean to create an apocalyptic-sounding paragraph. Big problems require creative solutions. I’m actually looking for a little creativity… How can we solve this creativity-drought problem? How can creativity be taught and nurtured inside and outside of schools?
In other other news, I see that the doors have been flung open and interested Teen Tix-ers are being handed the keys. I have this to say: Join the Teen Steering Committee!Realize the dreams of the 2009-2010 Steering Committee and talk Holly and Pete into Teen Tix belt buckles, get your friends to great shows, present the Teeny Awards, compare box office experiences, and laugh for an hour and a half straight every month... who wouldn't want to be a part of it?
