Russell Davies’ Creative Spaces Lens

by Guy Brighton in Creative Thinking

Over on Squidoo, Russell has developed a ‘lens’ site with a focus on creative spaces - how, why, where, when:

“I’m fascinated by which environments make for creativity and ideas, especially for ‘business creativity’. Everywhere I’ve worked has been in the business of having creative ideas, but the spaces have been very different.”

“This lens is intended to be a round-up of my explorations of this stuff.”

Inspiration: Else/Where Mapping

by Guy Brighton in Design

BooksmThe University of Minnesota Design Institute’s new book ELSE/WHERE: MAPPING charts the ascendancy of mapping as a fundamental design process: “a powerful interdisciplinary strategy that links people and places, data and organizations, and physical and virtual environments.”

The book features 40 essays by writers from the U.S. and Europe, nearly 300 images, and several commissioned projects. The book’s four sections “juxtapose archival maps and experimental prototypes—opening up a new dialogue among disciplines.”

The U3 Drive

by Guy Brighton in Creative Thinking

Usbrotate7Scoble spots a device that surely one of you guys can use for your own campaign, trial or distribution. It’s a USB drive with a difference:

Turns out it fools my PC into thinking it’s a CD-ROM drive that auto starts.

This is a radical way to distribute test software. Why? Cause I unplug my key and any software I run disappears along with it (and any traces, including any temp files I’ve downloaded — I got the Maxthon browser on the key, for instance. As soon as I unplug it everything goes away, even registry entries).
