If Beethoven was born before the piano was invented…
Imagine if Beethoven had been born in 1470 instead of 1770.
The piano wouldn’t have existed. Symphonies either. Beethoven would have gone on making something entirely different with his life, and his musical legacy and all its creative ripple effects would have never existed.
The technologies available to us today are fundamentals in shaping what we can express and share. A genius still needs the right tools to leverage his insights. Steve Jobs pre-electricity wouldn’t have added to Apple.
Seems obvious but then, what does that mean? To quote futurist Kevin Kelly, it means that:
“Today, somewhere out there, is a young person who’s waiting for us to invent the technology that will let them express their genius. Their genius is waiting for the technology that we need to invent right now.”
Today, the Internet is our technology to not only share what we have in us, but also have access to possibilities we wouldn’t have had before.
Thanks to it, we have been able to create a program that you can do from anywhere to activate your creativity with the tools you have access to right now. (Thank you Tim Berners-Lee ❤)
You don’t need to change cities or countries, go to a school for years, take a loan, justify your age, gender, nationality, talent or desire to create. You simply need to clear 60 minutes a day for one week.
Join us from the comfort of your home to explore your creativity in a safe space, and gain a bag of tools to leverage your creative insights from then on.
Use the technology of our Times to scratch your creative itch.
