The Monday Morning WHIP // 154

This week Stan gets us thinking about whether we’re being creative with our creativity.

Did you see the article in the news the other day about kids creating mobile apps? (http://www NULL.theage NULL.com NULL.au/digital-life/smartphone-apps/appy-kids-making-big-bucks-20111116-1nj3u NULL.html)

And when I say kids I don’t mean young people. I mean bloody 14 and 15 year old kids.

This morning I read about a girl who created a successful web business at 18 who has now, at the age of 20, has been accepted into a start up incubator program in the US. (http://www NULL.theage NULL.com NULL.au/technology/technology-news/aussie-nikki-joins-silicon-valley-millionaire-factory-20111118-1nlud NULL.html)

I cannot tell you how envious I am of these kids.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, they’re probably nerds.

But guess what kids – these young people are using their creativity to create things that make money.

Now I don’t know about you, but maybe, just maybe, this is a better way to pursue a creative career than hawking a folio around or doing something like Award School.

Then again, maybe not.

Definitely food for thought on a Monday morning though.
