Pixar University

TED conferences sound amazing and I've put it down as one of the conferences I want to attend before I die.

One of the speakers at TED is Ken Robinson, who is described as an education guru.

He talks about Pixar University here, as an example of a company that fosters creativity:

"On the corporate level, Pixar is a good example. The company has something called Pixar University, that runs classes, events, workshops and stuff throughout the day. Every employee is entitled to spend four hours a week at Pixar University, and they are encouraged to not take anything job-related. That keeps peoples' minds alive. "

Wouldn't you love it if you bosses think the same way?
