Welcome to the blog for the One Minute Professor (David Penrose). After being featured in a 2009 Chronicle of Higher Education cover story, [ Shieh, D. These Lectures Are Gone in 60 Seconds. (55)26, A1, A13 ] there has continued to be a great deal of interest and attention paid to "microlectures." These 60 second presentations were originally called "knowledge bursts" or "kbursts" because they were designed to invoke curiosity.
As I am working on the final draft of my first book - "The Genius Within: Secrets for Acquiring Vast Knowledge" - this blog is being launched to showcase the various ideas, concepts, and stories that are found throughout the book. I hope that you will return regularly or subscribe to the blog feed to keep posted on our progress.
