We need to be fostering creativity at every stage in our lives, especially in schools. How can we change or improve the system using creative ideas? The Bucket Brigade wants your help… (watch the presentation, it’s worth it.)
There’s nothing more fulfilling than creating something out of nothing, and in my opinion there is no better time to transform yourself into someone who can produce something from a mere idea. It doesn’t have to be perfect, or even refined. The ability to create a working prototype of an idea is invaluable. It’s not a mockup, it’s not a powerpoint deck, it’s a real, living, breathing thing that real users can interact with now. If you’re a developer or designer but lacking in the opposite discipline, what are you waiting for? You could be hacking on a cool idea as we speak. If you’re a business guy/woman, or “ideas person”, why spend any more time relying on other people** to build your ideas?
