My Secret Life as a Spaghetti Coder
home | about | contact | privacy statement
Scott Berkun wrote an essay about "Creative thinking hacks" with ideas on how to be more creative. The best part for me was this:
Here's a test: quickly pick two things in front of you, say this web browser and your annoying, smelly friend Rupert. Now close your eyes and imagine different ways to combine them.

If you're stuck, here are three:

1. Rupert with a minimize button
2. An annoying, smelly web browser
3. Web browsing on, or with, Rupert's face

Now while these combos might not be useful, good, or even practical, they're certainly creative. Adding a third element, say a gallon of jolt cola, might yield even more interesting combinations (a caffeine overdosed smelly web browser infused with Rupert's annoying personality).
The essay really got me thinking, so I considered it worth sharing with the rest of you. Enjoy.
