  1. Boost Creativity – using weblogs?

    I just came by a very interesting article which contains some very interesting elements on how to boost creativity.

    I’ll not go into detail here, but the overall elements are:

    Capturing
    Challenging
    Broardening
    Surrounding

    Personally I find the capturing-part very interesting. And of course I see the weblog technology as a container for exactly capturing thoughts, brainstorming and not to forget the personal- and team reflection during the process…….

    All the best

  2. Creativity is a strange thing. It can engulf any person when he is amply free to experiment and to add a special touch of his own.

    How can you capture something which is born only when one is free? Creativity, to me is a divine blessing which does not come to many……it blesses those who see white light in total darkness, it dwells in those who belong to the voice of their own conscience.
