Is creativity in the gift of the few, or can we all be creative? Do successful creators experience eureka moments or do their ideas take time to mature? Join computer and technology pioneer Kevin Ashton at Second Home as he uses real life stories and science to dispel commonly-held myths around genius and creativity to reveal the true process of discovery. Using examples that range from Archimedes to Apple and Kandinsky to the Coke can, Kevin Ashton’s refreshing take on the reality behind creativity will inspire the inventor in all of us. Kevin will be introduced by David Rowan, editor at Wired magazine. Responsible for coining the phrase “the Internet of Things”, Kevin is also the author of How to Fly a Horse: The Secret History of Creation, Invention and Discovery. He will be introduced by David Rowan, Editor at WIRED magazine.
