The brainstorm has emerged as a critical activity in generating creative thought within a multitude of disciplines from design to business to politics. Since the birth of modern psychology, there has been an increased fascination in the phenomenology of mind (Gladwell's recent bestseller BLINK as an example); where do our ideas come from, how stable are our thought processes, what are the connections between what we think and what we feel. In the face of the computer's superior storage, retrieval and sorting power we have begun to appreciate human expertise in terms of adaptive strategy and complex connectivity of mind, the brainstorm is good example of our efforts to harness that expertise, relying on spontaneous associations and collaborations. The purpose of this talk is to discuss what sort of tools and activities are necessary to facilitate real time creativity.
