What? Computing! Creativity! Surely that's all wrong. Not at all. You might have been told by teachers and some of them, whisper it quietly, might have been computing teachers, that computing is a technical subject. And that like all technical subjects such as maths or physics, things are either right or wrong. Well in computing, the real answer on most occasions may be, Maybe.
Computers and computing software are nothing but tools created by programmers to help us do a job. And like nearly everything in life, there is more than one way to solve a problem and whether one way is better than another, is often a matter of opinion. Even programmers will disagree about the best way to write a program to solve a task. And the best bit is, if there isn't a piece of software to help you, programmers will create one, perhaps even make up a new programming language to help them do it.
If you have any doubts about this, look at the huge number of apps appearing not just for the iPhone/iPad, but also Android and Windows devices. They're all similar, but different, illustrating the creativity involved in making them and enabling the creativity of those using them.
But what do you think? Do you think computing is creative? Have you used software and computers to create something different?
And what about Justin Bieber. Is he wunderkind and the future of popular music or what?
