The elements of creativity

Kirby Ferguson, 2011

Is there such a thing as inventions or is it all just transformations and variations of already exisiting ideas? The Macintosh computer, the Model T Ford and the QWERTY keyboard were all iterations that would have never existed if it wasn’t for the work of others.

Kirby Ferguson walks us through some examples ranging from the invention of the print press around 1440 to why there were so many sci-fi movies about artificial reality released in 1999.
