James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

September 21 a collection of interesting things.

Posted on | September 21, 2015 | No Comments

Each week at about this time, give or take a day or 2, I like to collect some of the things I have been looking at that I think you might also find interesting.

I hope as you find that nugget of information you will do me the favour and share also.

Here we go.


www.creativemornings.com is a easily the best way to start your day once a month. The idea is 7 years old and there are over 107 Chapters world-wide that meet monthly and have a breakfast lecture structured around a common theme.


Think of this as a TEDx that is an hour long with a single speaker and a free breakfast, the best of all worlds really.

I am particularly proud to be part of the organising team with @CM_Dubai.


October 22 is the next event, check out the videos and prepare to join us at 8am for SHOCK.


The ME Indie Jukebox is back with Triplew.me and you not only want to listen to the cool indie tunes from across the middle east but you want to share.


Back to @CreativeMornings for a moment.

Everyone needs a manifesto I have believed this for a very long time and last week @CreativeMornings published theirs.

Everyone is creative.


A creative life requires bravery and action, honesty and

hard work. We are here to support you, celebrate with

you, and encourage you to make the things you love.


We believe in the power of community. We believe in giving

a damn. We believe in face-to-face connections, in

learning from others, in hugs and high-fives.


We bring together people who are driven by passion and

purpose, confident that they will inspire one another, and

inspire change in neighborhoods and cities around the



Everyone is welcome.



I am starting to think that Vooza may actually be an educational tool and not a comedy vehicle.

OK maybe a bit of comedy and education but more education.



Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon doing impressions is pretty good.

OK there is more to come but I wanted to get you started with a few things to ponder and think about.
