Q. How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
A. None. It's a hardware problem.

@Kyatric: Thanks for posting and good to hear that it is easier to explain what creativity is not than what it is as well as not having to be born with it or have a talent for it too.

It is also good to know that creativity is not related to IQ, but more to your mood or ability to play for its own sake or in other words becoming more childlike and curious which hopefully is a no-brainer.

So for pondering a problem being in this open-mode is the way to go to get the creative juices going, but once you have done this it is important to switch to the close-mode to execute the plan than back to the open-mode to ponder what worked and did not work than back to the close-mode to execute what worked, etc.

Really a lot of great insight in this video which I will touch back with many times in my app development process.

When I evernoted this post, some other videos specifically TED Talks I evernoted in the past which I found interesting came up such as: Amy Tan: Where does creativity hide?, Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius, and Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity.jwjb2012-07-27 15:37:57
