Big ideas

Here’s the TED link and a YouTube link (with subtitles) for this talk.

Which research project or presentation would you rather hear about?

“Star Wars”

“I Like ‘Star Wars'”

“‘Star Wars’ Is A Metaphor for …”

Only the third one has (potentially) a “big idea”. I want your research projects and presentations to be about a big idea.

Read about this last big idea here (which is actually 6 different ideas):

“‘Star Wars’ Is Really About Feminism. And Jefferson. And Jesus.” (from Bloomberg)

Whether or not you find any of these ideas persuasive is a different matter. At least they are ideas.

You can get your big ideas from research. And then develop them with your own ideas.
