Creative Technologists are a new type of breed. The Creative Geek (or “Creek” for short) has a very unique and mixed profile. It’s a profile where the left side of the brain meets the right side. Creeks are logical, rational, analytical and objective which are all qualities coming from their technical background and left side of the brain while equally they are random, intuitive, synthesizing and subjective which are all qualities coming from the right side and creative side of the brain. They have this unique blend that looks at the parts as well at the wholes.
Not too keen on the “Creek” definition, but wholeheartedly agree with the need for people that are both Creative and Technology “aware” and can drive innovation within organizations.
“There can be no better investment—no better stimulus to our economy—than feeding this nation’s children healthily and well…Providing the building blocks for millions of kids to grow and develop as they should, will mean a population of robust and productive adults, and a more competitive America.”—Chef Tom Colicchio testifying before the House Education and Lavor Committee in favor of the “Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act.” (via Serious Eats)
