Deborah Welsh's curator insight, June 3, 2014 5:29 AM

We often don't see the creativity in ourselves or in others. Creativity can be learned. Having a growth mindset is a good beginning.

Thanks Allan!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 7, 2014 4:25 AM

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2014 6:27 PM

Don't let your creative juices run dry! We are all students of life!

Repositioning Is Not a New Business Model

Repositioning Is Not a New Business Model | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

The distinction between “different” and “new” is that with the former, the basic structure of the item — car, house, boat — remains the same. With “new,” we’re involved in the replacement of the old. How does this affect the way we describe business models and their likely impact in the search for advantage?

"Copy editing for The New Yorker is like playing shortstop for a Major League Baseball team -- every little movement gets picked over by the critics," says Mary Norris, who has played the position for more than thirty years. In that time, she's gotten a reputation for sternness and for being a "comma maniac," but this is unfounded, she says. Above all, her work is aimed at one thing: making authors look good. Explore The New Yorker's distinctive style with the person who knows it best in this charming talk.

The mind behind Linux

Linus Torvalds transformed technology twice -- first with the Linux kernel, which helps power the Internet, and again with Git, the source code management system used by developers worldwide. In a rare interview with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique philosophy of work, engineering and life. "I am not a visionary, I'm an engineer," Torvalds says. "I'm perfectly happy with all the people who are walking around and just staring at the clouds ... but I'm looking at the ground, and I want to fix the pothole that's right in front of me before I fall in."

At the opening of A Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA and Beyond, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) director Glenn Lowry recalled that, when they first started to conceptualize the exhibit, the original idea was for a monographic show on the 2013 Pritzker laureate Toyo Ito. But the 74-year-old architect was much more interested in the trans-generational network of relationships with his peers, past and present, that continues to inform his work.
