James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

On Creativity

Creativity is an odd thing. I seem to have been on this odd quest of a sort since 2009 running into bits and pieces of how people manage, wrestle and tame their own creative energy long enough to grab the idea and put it into a form that others can understand. It is absolutely interesting […]

Creativity is in the air!

In 2009 I had the opportunity to attend my 1st TED Conference in Long Beach California, this event was a creativity game changer for me.

I love a new idea and this is clever as well as technologically viable! I would love to see how we could use this for public education. Imagine putting doors in a school and connecting to a refugee camp? Imagine putting a door in a mall and connecting to a souq? Imagine!

Define Creativity?

Creativity is one of those words that the moment you utter it people position themselves as either having it or not having it. I am not so certain you can not be creative.
