Via renee fountain
Patrizia Bertini's insight:

intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual brains. It also arises with groups of individuals. In fact, I'd define collective intelligence as groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. By that definition, of course, collective intelligence has been around for a very long time. Families, companies, countries, and armies: those are all examples of groups of people working together in ways that at least sometimes seem intelligent. (..) What's new, though, is a new kind of collective intelligence enabled by the Internet.

Patrizia Bertini's insight:

 If you ask me what information is, it really makes me think that if everything I have turned the other way was information as it’s presented, my natural instinct is to turn everything over and examine it from underneath, or sideways or back to front, or upside down… That’s how I get to the truth. I just don’t accept information as it’s given to me.

(...) "Wikipedia has opened new grounds by using hyper-textual tools, a crowd-sourced editorial process and an open intellectual property. These are all good and each should be pursued to further develop collective intelligence in online environments. But Wikipedia also contains within its DNA the typographic epistemology and the categorization system of good old colonial Great Britain." (...)

Does Brainstorming Enhance Creative Thinking and Innovation? | Creactivity | Scoop.it

The motivation for and specific nature of a brainstorming group is what matters in how well its members come up with creative ideas.

 

Psychologists have different perspectives on whether and how much brainstorming groups help develop creativity.

Elements of Compelling Video Storytelling

Elements of Compelling Video Storytelling | Creactivity | Scoop.it

"Once upon a time, public relations professionals only considered using video for major national stories ­– a video news release.

 

But over the past several years, in the throes of a slow and rather quiet death, print media has moved past obsolete into antiquated, and video media has surged forward to replace it.

 

Internet video channels and the phenomenon of “viral” status has rendered video an essential element in successful national-level business storytelling. This is evident in Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and Inc."

Bruno Munari on Design as a Bridge Between Art and Life

Bruno Munari on Design as a Bridge Between Art and Life | Creactivity | Scoop.it
"The designer of today re-establishes the long-lost contact between art and the public, between living people and art as a living thing."
Patrizia Bertini's insight:

Today it has become necessary to demolish the myth of the ‘star’ artist who only produces masterpieces for a small group of ultra-intelligent people. It must be understood that as long as art stands aside from the problems of life it will only interest a very few people. Culture today is becoming a mass affair, and the artist must step down from his pedestal and be prepared to make a sign for a butcher’s shop (if he knows how to do it).

Henry Ford once said, “If I had asked my customers what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.” [...] Unfortunately, when the time comes to innovate, many brands and companies have been so brainwashed by the ridiculous notion that “the target audience and core consumer know all”.

Patrizia Bertini's insight:

The decade of Design Thinking is ending and I, for one, am moving on to another conceptual framework: Creative Intelligence.

I believe the concept of Creative Intelligence expands that social engagement even further. [B. Nussbaum]

Patrizia Bertini's insight:

“Businesses are pyramids built to promote efficiency. But creativity is generated within circles — playgrounds — where a small number of highly talented people, usually in twos, threes or small teams, work.[…] Creative competence is like a sport. You can train for it and increase the capacities of yourself and your organization. If you get good at it, you can also transform it into real economic value on a massive scale.” Bruce Nussbaum”

Patrizia Bertini's insight:

A social entity needs a shared identity and a shared identity comes from a focus on the social and relational dimension. In such a scenario a playing activity that takes advantage of the community-oriented approach leading to the construction of a shared identity through the development of a shared language and shared social practices (Huizinga 1950) can already be extremely beneficial, but putting it together with the a tridimensional, embodied cognition approach can be revolutionary.
