Last month I posted the first article in this series. Its premise was that—like tennis, carpentry, and playing the guitar—creative thinking is a skill that can be learned and developed. I did not assert that everyone can become a creative genius, but I did say that whatever one’s starting point, there are proven ways to get better—that people can learn to think and act more creatively.I was delighted by the number of comments, mostly positive. But I was also surprised by the emotional intensity
What's the best way to stimulate your creativity? Author Mason Currey turned to the daily rituals of famous writers, artists and composers for tips, and he shares what he learned in his new bookDaily Rituals: How Great Minds Make Time, Find Inspiration, and Get to Work.
"The thing that really leapt out at me in my research was how hard a lot of creative activity is," Currey told Spark host Nora Young in a recent interview. "Even very famous, successful artists really struggle on a day-to-day basis with getting things done and maintaining that high level of creativity."
Marcher pieds nus sur un LEGO c’est un peu comme si l’on venait de marcher sur une punaise…ça fait très mal. Aux Etats-Unis, The post Un chemin de LEGO à traverser pieds nus appeared first on Il était une pub.
There is no concept more politically important today than creativity. I’ll give four reasons why but first a definition.
‘Creative’ has narrow, broader and even broader connotations in English. It’s the last of these we should be most interested in.
The narrow meaning immediately leads one to think of activities directly associated with the arts.
The broader sense encompasses those activities associated with what Richard Florida calls the ‘creative class’. This includes the arts but also involves activities such as architecture, design, advertising, video game development etc.
As leaders look beyond the top ranks for creative direction, they must combat what Diego Rodriguez, a partner at IDEO and the leader of its Palo Alto, California, office, calls the “lone inventor myth.” Though past breakthroughs sometimes have come from a single genius, the reality today is that most innovations draw on many contributions. “Consider the examples of InnoCentive, of Mozilla, of Wikipedia,” Rodriguez said. “All are contexts that bring in lots of contributors. And the fundamental structure of such networked organizations is not centralized and top-down. People don’t do what they do because someone told them to do it. Contributing to an interdependent network is its own reward.
Raphaël Suire est co-responsable du master 2 ECOTIC, où les étudiants se forment au webmarketing et à la stratégie numérique. Ces domaines d'expertise conduisent à des métiers d'apparition récente et très demandés : gestionnaire de communautés ou d'audience, référenceur, webdata analyst... Certains diplômés de ce master sont entrés chez Google, ou encore Amazon.
Pour ses enseignements au sein du master, tout comme pour ses recherches en géographie de l'innovation, Raphaël Suire utilise un outil puissant, issu des mathématiques : le graphe. Celui-ci permet, entre autres, de représenter aisément les groupes d'individus et leurs interactions.
Karine Sabatier's insight:
Raphaël décrit les mécanismes communautaires rennais au travers de l'étude de ces graphes et s'intéresse notamment au Booster, le programme d'accélération de la Cantine
Franz Kafka is considered one of the most creative and influential writers of the 20th century, but he actually spent most of his time working as a lawyer for the Workers Accident Insurance Institute. How did Kafka produce such fantastic creative works while holding down his day job? By sticking to a strict schedule.
Les vins de Bordeaux sont et restent une référence mondiale, malgré une concurrence accrue de la part de nouveaux pays producteurs, comme The post La nouvelle campagne des vins de Bordeaux signée par l’agence ISOBEL.
It’s been a while since we’ve shared a stop-motion film, but ‘A Girl Named Elastika’ by French filmmaker Guillaume Blanchet was a no-brainer. At once simple (equipment wise) and incredibly complex (how long did it take to move all those thumbtacks!?) the video is impressive from start to finish.
And fortunately for Blanchet, we’re not the only ones that think this. The video only made it to Vimeo a couple of days ago, but over the last year he has been collecting animation awards left and right for something that was created almost entirely on a bulletin board!
