The choices we make and the initiatives we launch determine the choices we'll have before us in the future. Many have described this phenomenon as "path dependency".

In taking a step back, we should never forget the trajectory we're on, and the blinkers that limit our view of why we want to do what we say we want to do.

A few months ago we published an article about Station 16's (successful) crowdfunding campaign to produce 16 silkscreen prints with 16 artists in 16 months. In the same vein, Graffmap's Simon Landry hopes to draw enough funds to create an app that would facilitate the discovery of street art in Montreal and elsewhere. With 4 days left, the app is still 6,000$ short of its objective. +Lisa Waizmann reports.

We had the chance of hearing Daniel Baylis speak last Friday as part of the Creative Mornings/ Montreal lecture series. A perfect outro to C2MTL, and a perfect introduction for the summer to come. "The choice of constraints and the freedom of creation" is Francis Gosselin's interview with him.

This is the story of the hour: Jill Abramson, Executive Editor of The New York Times, was abruptly terminated this week. This may be an opportunity to rethink the management structure of this great knowledge production company. 

Because sometimes, the skills required for great journalistic work makes for poor abilities in managing others.

On apprenait cette semaine que La Presse allait cesser, dans un avenir prochain, de produire une version imprimée. 

Un exemple typique du "dilemme de l'innovateur", où la recherche de marges de profit toujours plus grandes est aussi la source d'un grand risque pour ce quotidien...

We were initially exposed to the Oculus Rift at SXSW earlier in March. What we didn't know then is that some of the outstanding content creators that stand behind the technology are two Montreal directors, who have developed their own technology and narratives. We met them at TP1's first 15x15, a creative conference series. 

"Leading the revolution". That sounds about right!

Depuis plusieurs mois, Geneviève Dupuis réfléchit à la question du croisement entre technologie et créativité, dans le cadre notamment de l'industrie de la mode. 

Nous étions donc ravis d'apprendre que celle-ci sera conférencière dans le cadre du colloque "L’innovation dans l’industrie du vêtement : perspectives d’avenir" le 13 mai prochain à l'ACFAS. Une nouvelle relayée notamment par le Journal Métro. Bravo!

The president and thinker at the helm of Disney Pixar for nearly three decades, Ed Catmull published on April 8th a memoir, Creativity Inc., in which he plunges deep inside the cultural factors that drives creation. 

With great authenticity, he describes success and failure, hierarchy and collaboration, candor, honesty and desire. 

A must read.
