In this episode I want to do a thought exercise as I am curious what people think about the topic of technology and creativity.
So, my wife just got back from South by Southwest the film, media, and music festival in Austin, TX and she came home with a hat, part of the swag she collected, that featured a message that essentially offered the thought that advancements in tech will help open opportunities for creativity. This got me thinking and led me to do some research where I found an article from Forbes written by Greg Satell titled “How Technology Enhances Creativity.” In the article, he argues
Technology does not quell creativity, in fact, there’s a great deal of evidence that suggests that technology enhances creativity. Certainly, we are expected to be more creative in our working lives than a generation ago. The truth is that by expanding possibilities and automating part of the creative process, we can all be more creative and productive. (Satell, 2014)
