One of my uses is to challenge and ask questions - especially the ones on the margin - and with a bit of edge as a style. My foundational themes are about careers and finding your way to living a life of significance; the power of young people to be engaged in and change the society; and, the power of critical thinking.
I am have also been known to focus on elements of spectator experience rather than the actual event itself. (I always decide that there are enough people who will write and talk about the event or activity.) When I engage the online environment, I look for what I believe are cutting edge and innovative “things” – improvisation in the conventional and inspiration in the ordinary.
