My car radio’s still broken, so I continue to “enjoy” several podcasts on the iPod (iPhone really, but I don’t want to sound pretentious…)
I heard a great quote on a “LOST” Podcast by J.J. Abrams – the guy behind Alias, Lost, Mission Impossible 3 and Cloverfield. You writers and Apple lovers will dig this:
He’s been talking about “the blank page” and “magic box” concepts…
“In the creative process, technology is mindblowingly inspiring to me. I realize that that blank page IS a magic box – it needs to be filled with something fantastic…. I love Apple computers – I’m obsessed. This (Apple laptop) right here, it challenges me. It basically says, y’know, “What are you going to write, worthy of ME?”
I love that. It’s almost as though us Apple users have an OBLIGATION and RESPONSIBILITY to use these works of technological art to their fullest potential.
Or rather – that they are designed and created to assist us in reaching our creative potential.
Sing with me, the Napoleon Dynamite love theme, “I love technology….”
What technology helps YOUR creativity?
