Technology ≠ Creativity

by - m on 02/07/2012

More technology won’t make you creative.

Creativity cannot exist without struggle.

Technology makes things too easy.

It’s a battle trying to get the thing that you have in your head onto that piece of paper, or that canvas, or that instrument.

The ‘Aha’ moment that happens when the tumblers fall into place and the lock finally snaps open seems spontaneous.

But it took years of experience.

And planning.

And struggle.

“Technology can make it easier, it can get you there faster, but it doesn’t make you creative.”
~ Jack White, It Might Get Loud
