“There is no technology, no time-saving device that can alter the rhythms of creative labor. When the worth of labor is expressed in terms of exchange value, therefore, creativity is automatically devalued every time there is an advance in the technology of work.” Lewis Hyde, The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World [via]

I disagree – I have found some technologies that augment the creative process and feel great progress can, and hopefully will, be made in that area.
Nice one Steve. Of course, I know you are going to share some thoughts on those technologies as well. Looking forward to reading the post.
