I’m interested to see where the blog goes, but so far, it looks very promising for any renaissance soul.
Co-founder Mark McGuinness, also of wishfulthinking.co.uk, takes a hard stance on the necessity for creatives and conceptual thinkers.
creativity isn’t a nice-to-have or a fun-to-do, it’s a matter of economic survival. Complex, challenging creative work is (so far) difficult to automate or outsource cheaply overseas. Creativity is what transforms utilitarian products into distinctive artifacts that are a pleasure to look at and a joy to use. It’s what makes people queue for days to get their hands on an iPhone, ignoring the clever friend who tells them they can get a “technically superior” alternative for half the price.
