Dr. Bill Smith Center For Change A New View of Change People generally agree that todays change is different. It is not necessarily connected to the past or indicative of the future. Todays change is discontinuous, requiring total flexibility. There seem to be very few cyclical trends or linear progressions.
Dr. Bill Smith Center For Change People and Change To an ever increasing extent, in less time than people need to get comfortable with one set of circumstances, they find themselves in a completely new set. Can some way be found to get a much better match between the rate of change of the world and the rate of peoples adaptation? When the problem is put that way, there seems to be only two ways it might be solved: Teach people to adapt faster, or slow down the rate of change. Stanley Schmidt -- editor of Analog

Dr. Bill Smith Center For Change Walt Disneys Vision The idea of Disneyland is a simple one. It will be a place for people to find happiness and knowledge. It will be a place for parents and children to spend pleasant times in one anothers company: a place for teachers and pupils to discover greater ways of understanding and education. Here the older generation can recapture the nostalgia of days gone by, and the younger generation can savor the challenge of the future. Here will be the wonders of Nature and man for all to see and understand. Disneyland will be based upon and dedicated to the ideas, the dreams and hard facts that have created America. And it will be uniquely equipped to dramatize these dreams and facts and send them forth as a source of courage and inspiration to all the world. Disneyland will be something of a fair, an exhibition, a playground, a community center, a museum of living facts, and a showplace of beauty and magic. It will be filled with the accomplishments, the joys and hopes of the world we live in. And it will remind us and show us how to make those wonders part of our own lives.
