Kevin Werbach had a post recently that bridges both worlds:
Fun, perhaps, is America's secret weapon. A billion people in India and more in China want the quality of life we've been blessed with, and in an era of globalization, they can suddenly beat us at our own game. In the struggle for wealth and productivity, there are no entitlements. Many American individuals and corporations find this deeply scary. Yet, we, who have the luxury of starting off fat and happy, can more easily devote our energies to what we love. If we are to succeed in the post-networked century, we must learn to kindle innovation in this way. I don't mean leisure and entertainment; I mean passion with a purpose. Useful creativity, if you will.
