Insight: "In other words: Instead of getting down to the “nitty-gritty” when trying to be creative, you should try to distance yourself from the problem you are solving."
"To come up with creative solutions to problems, your chances are increased by incorporating breaks into your work-flow."
"People who have participated in the creative stage are likely to be more motivated to carry out the group’s decision." ~
Creative Thinking: How to Be More Creative (with Science!)
Creative thinking is an important part of producing things that people love. Here’s the science behind creative thought and ingenuity.
Coming from the Lake District (Cumbria, UK), this image resonates big time. I've never seen anything so #creative in dry stone walling – amazing! Hope it inspires others to look at something rather bland, ie. a wall, and think, how can I make it more interesting, how can I add value to it.
Great way to start a Saturday – thanks to #favfor sharing.

Being asked to be more creative is one thing, having the conditions and environment is something completely different. I love this Dilbert cartoon as it just typifies the whole point – those who are doing creative jobs need to have environments that are creative and be surrounded by other creative people; get it wrong, and not a lot of creative work gets done. Simple really.

A reminder of the important things in life
Having an interesting/strange/semantic conversation on Twitter about the word ‘hacking’ and its relationship to creativity and programming this evening.
Would like to poll the question to a wider audience, so please also RT with your comment… thanks.
.@simbeckhampson why is that worrying? hacking is a form of creativity, something I try to encourage in teens I work with.
.@simbeckhampson not at all. I think you have a very narrow view of what hacking entails/requires. Have you ever taught kids programming?
Perhaps my hacker friends can help @simbeckhampson understand that hacking ≠ evil but does facilitate creativity.
.@simbeckhampson You’ll have to read her published work to understand what I mean, then. And no, NOT all forms of hacking are illegal.
.@simbeckhampson you have “cognitive development” & “learning” in your profile. I’m very surprised you think so negatively about hacking.
.@simbeckhampson Sure, I’ll ask my Twitter network right now. That’s 1,480 people (in theory).
Hey Polly peeps: do the words “hacking,” “tinker,” or “manipulate” seem dark/negative to you? do they sound illegal? cc @simbeckhampson
Just spent a good hour following links, listening to audio and watching videos from Nicholas Carr and I have to say, he’s nailing it! He was asked by ABC – ‘So, is there a solution?’ He replied,
“Each of us is responsible for the choices we make and how we use or don’t use our minds… each of us has to ask hard questions… is the balance of thinking conducive to getting the most creative… the most introspective thought we can… and I think we’re losing this right now.”
I also read that the book is not aimed at one particular generation, but more for everyone using the Internet. I guess my question has to be: How are we going to communicate this message to a younger audience? Will they listen or are they too engrossed in the medium to care?
