Clay Shirky: What I Learned About Creativity By Watching Creatives from Piers Fawkes on Vimeo

In this talk Clay Shirky takes a look at five student projects to highlight the many facets of creativity. Some of the projects are just plain fun, but with no apparent practical use. Like the mud that changes color when you play with it. Others are serious like the project that reunites people with their families. And others are in between. But what they all have in common is what Shirky calls valuable novelty.
