I don’t have enough knowledge, training, expertise, skills, etc, etc, etc to give sophisticated answers to these questions. Instead, I did a Powerpoint presentation with some drawings and random thoughts. Lost some neurons in the process.

What is information ? But if I can’t interpret them, I can’t draw any learning from them. There’s a whole lot of data, events, things, messages, (facts?) out there that could potentially become information. If it’s not useful for me, it’s just noise.

What is technology ? The ultimate black-box – don’t care how it works as long as it’s useful for me. A competitive advantage For companies, nations…. The conjuction of knowledge ( logos ) and technique. (right?)

What is creativity ? This one is the one that gives me more trouble to come up with an image. The potential to create something that was not there? Being creative is not the same as being artistic, or original. There’s no recipe for creativity. Wish I had one otherwise…
