The next article in our series Rethinking Technology & Creativity in the 21st Century is out. Sadly there is an error in the title of the paper. The paper explores the idea of play as a key trans-disciplinary habit of mind often used by creative people across disciplines. Our previous articles have looked at PerceivingPatterning, Abstracting, and Modeling. Below is a link to the latest article (you can see all the articles in the series by going here).

* Please note that this article had a mistake in its title. I have placed a note with the right title on this PDF but it may not match the actual printed article as well as the pdf version available on the TechTrends website.

Incidentally, I had not posted our last article on the site, so here it is:
