From the Studio 360 website-
A new study shows that young Americans are getting less creative. Ashley Merryman co-wrote “The Creativity Crisis,” a Newsweek article that looks at the ramifications of this decline. Merryman tells Kurt that creative thinking, often neglected by schools, is not just for the arts — it’s actually the key to solving some of the most difficult challenges we face today, from the gulf oil spill to fighting terrorism.

The Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project and Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center just released their fourth “Future of the Internet” survey, the topic of which was “The Future of Social Relations.” The opt-in study, which tapped 895 tech stakeholders and critics, essentially presented respondents with two differing world views:
“In 2020, when I look at the big picture and consider my personal friendships, marriage and other relationships, I see that the internet has mostly been a positive force on my social world. And this will only grow more true in the future. ”

This is an article from the blog “Fuel your Creativity” written by Jennifer Moline
“Online portfolios are a key part of any creative professional’s marketing arsenal. Whether you’re a graphic designer, photographer, writer or some type of artist, prospective clients want to see your goods – they want to check out what your skills you have to offer them. However, displaying your hard work on the Internet puts it out here for thieves to exploit – those people might simply grab it. Some of them have malicious intentions, as they might pass your work samples off as their own for financial gain, while others simply don’t know any better and may post your design or photo with no credit to illustrate a blog or adorn a website.”

This is a project that found on the Wooster Collective web feed:
“Sun Boxes are twenty speakers operating independently each powered by solar panels. There is a different guitar sample in each box all playing together making the composition. The guitar samples are all of different lengths so the whole piece keeps evolving.
Participants are encouraged to walk amongst the speakers. It sounds different inside of the array. There is a different sense of space inside. Certain speakers will be closer and louder therefore the piece will sound different to different people in different positions throughout the array. Creating a unique experience for everyone.
There are no batteries involved. The Sun Boxes are reliant on the sun. When the sun sets the music stops. The piece changes as the length of the day changes. Making the participants aware of the cycle of the day.”
Beryl Korot describes the impetus behind the innovative 1970s publication Radical Software, elucidating the history of video in art and the impact of mass media on society. Emerging from an independent video community that included media visionaries such as Marshall McLuhan and groups such as Televisionaries, Videofreex, People’s Video Theater, and Global Village, the first issue of Radical Software debuted in Spring of 1970 as a publication by the Raindance Corporation. Beryl Korot and Phyllis Segura (Gershuny) acted as Editors, while Michael Shamburg served as Publisher with Ira Schneider as co-Originator. Early contributors included Nam June Paik, Buckminster Fuller, Ant Farm, Frank Gillette, and Paul Ryan, among others. After eleven issues, Radical Software ceased publication in the Spring of 1974 and is now an invaluable time capsule of an era. This video is published on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the first issue.
