Others Thinking About Flow

There seem to be a growing number of references to flow in what I read.

I'm not sure if it is just because of my recent decision to blog, which may be making me more aware of it, but it's not a bad thing. Stimulates ones thinking, even if a lot of it gets back to the original ideas in Mihaly's (I don't mean to be overly familiar here, but writing out his full name is a flow-killer!) books.

I have got to be careful in what I saw about the other articles (which I hope to reference and blog about shortly) as it implies that I am expecting greater insights that the original works ..... something I'm sure is not easy both given the great contribution made by Mihaly and the fact that we may not need anymore information to attain flow - just a matter of applying what is know.

Also, for an individual to dissect the "flow phenomena" may be counter-productive to achieving it.

Anyway, there are some good ideas out there!
