Saw a link from Chris Geier (K2), about how we should look to computer programmers for inspiration – with regard to “creativity” :
The common stereotype for programmers is this: nerdy, pocket-protector wielding, and very, very boring.
One doesn’t typically link a programmer as a creative individual.
However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Working with code is one of the most creative jobs one can have.
Programmers have to balance two very different worlds: a world of structure and a world of imagination.
The article covers 14 different lessons that can be learnt from coders, that you could apply in every day life. Kinda like “self-help”, by looking at from nerds ?!?
Worth a read through – captures our “art” in a great way :
If you’ve ever spent more than two minutes talking with a programmer about his work, you’ll find out very quickly that programmers have a passion for what they do. They eat, sleep and breathe programming.
