H.G.: Thank you.

K.D.: Thank you.

R.K.: Now, Bottom Up Radio is based on the idea that we're in a transition from a Top Down to a Bottom Up world that is affecting us in all aspects of our lives: our culture, our politics, even the way people's brains work.  So when I saw this new book of yours I was very excited about it and  one of my goals is to have you frame some of your ideas in a Bottom Up -- Top Down approach if that's possible.  

Another goal is to discuss your Theory of Multiple Intelligences, which is what drew me to your book, Apps Generation.  So I'd like you to start out talking a little bit about Multiple Intelligences, and what the concept is, what new ideas you've had about it, and then we'll jump in to the Apps Generation and spend most of our time talking about that.  Can you begin with that?

H.G.: Sure.  I'm by training a psychologist and literally thirty years ago I published a book about multiple intelligences called Frames of Mind, and as a psychologist I was critiquing the notion that there's just a single continuum of smart to average to dumb and if a person is smart in one thing he or she should be smart in everything and if they're not smart in one thing they're going to be dumb in everything, and the Theory of Multiple Intelligences claims that human beings have several rather independent forms of thinking.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
