Out-of-the-box ideas to solve problems

A clip from Crowd Control, a new National Geographic channel show, puts innovative thinking to work solving problems. This clip highlights a novel idea to trick New Yorkers into taking the stairs instead of an escalator. Notice that no one knows they are exercising or doing “the right thing” – they are just having fun. This clip addresses the problem of stopping people from illegally parking in disabled spaces. Crowd Control is the latest project of Daniel Pink, author of Drive – one of my favorite books.
