The one thing that I've noticed that I have that the children born about a decade or two before me is that my computer now does my creativity for me.
Many people are talking about how children to play with models and learn the basics of being creative. This just isn't really a choice anymore. Most of our bright young minds are drawn early into computer focused fields, and have a natural interest in technology, because it's neat, it challenges us, and we don't fully understand it.
Everything is so visually amazing now with the advent of advanced animation techniques, I'm not sure the last time I saw a movie with people actually acting on a set that wasn't just a blue room. Who needs imagination when James Cameron has already captured the coolest looking thing that a team of professional writers could dream up and made it available on my magic light screen for me to call up at any point. (and if I don't mind crossing a few legal gray areas, it's free to boot! Can't say that about a new Lego set)
But now comes current day, where I'm basically locked ball and chain to this damn machine. I was one of those kids who was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, but honestly, I was just a normal "wiz kid". But playing Real Time Strategy games when I was young built up my ability to micromanage multiple tasks, and the internet could answer any question I had in fractions of a second. And that's always how it's been. The real world just doesn't move as fast as the eWorld, and those of us who grew up on constant instant satisfaction just don't think to take time and figure out a problem for ourselves. I simply never learned the patience that creativity requires. If a solution is not readily apparent, I've learned to instead of trusting in my own intuition, to merely find the answer online.
Technology is wonderful, but it has bred some little monsters. I'm one of them.
