We are all creative in our ways, but sometimes we forget about them....It isn't until someone pushes our limits that we realize our forgotten creativity skills

When I started college I had a friend who would give weird names to everything.  She named my ring Theodore Snowflake, her scarf was Antoinette Marie III.  

The closer we got, the more we started fabricating each others personality traits.

Sana commented on Does environment impact creative confidence ?

Hi Ashish,

This is a great inspiration.
Congdon ends the article really well "Place matters. Physical and virtual places shape behavior and can amplify the performance of individuals, teams—and ultimately, the entire organization." This reminds me of a case study: "Who moved my cube?" by Anne-Laure Fayard and John Weeks.

They discuss the physical/virtual characteristics that can lead to informal interaction which can leads to creative collaboration.

Similar to this Bloomberg business week article. Fayard and Weeks agree that a physical space requires a balance between three affordance: proximity, permission, and privacy.

Sana commented on Dead Poet's Society Reflections on Conformism

I agree with you 100% Dina that we need more "Do-ers" than just "teachers" to instill the idea of creative confidence in students.

Sana commented on Phone Ladies: A woman per village to spread the word

Hey Anne, I am also one of Anne-Laure's students. There are a few ways to do so you can either go really old school and use radio waves to send the data. Along with what Youjin is suggesting, I think these two options are very feasible. Hopefully this helps
