Creativity DOES NOT come from our laptops

For all the great mind mapping tools out there, for all the shiny new apps that covet my attention, when it comes to creative thinking, designing things, or brainstorming a new talk, paper is it. #whyinformatics #hitsm #hcldr

Here are some examples:

Designing my Failure Resumé talk

Designing my AI talk

Designing my Sprint talk

Attending the Stanford Design Thinking for Social Systems

Of course, you should know that it is never this clean, never this simple. You don’t see the crumpled sheets, the trash can overflowing, the angry scribbles, the hair torn out and the yelling into the void. No, you don’t see it.

I’ll give John Cleese the last, inspiring words on this.

We don’t know where we get our ideas from. What we DO know is that we do not get them from our laptops.
