Well, I never worked for a company that gave two shits about employee creativity, so I'd never seen this or anything related to it (I was aware of this venture, though).

It's very strange that we'd seem to be getting dumber now that we're more connected than ever, you should be able to find just about anything you'd want to be able to find the second you think about it, I think the problem is that of everything we can see and hear, we only see and hear a small amount.  This should be the smartest generation on Earth yet because the minute we hear of something we don't know about, we can look it up.  It's all at our fingertips.  For example, I'm watching The West Wing and they just mentioned this little lighthouse at the George Washington Bridge, and I looked it up and saw it for the first time without even moving.  We should be taking total advantage of that all the time.

I think what we're seeing with the coding and web people is that they're aware of this and are taking advantage of it.  I've been saying for a long time that a big deal of creativity involves being aware of the widest array of influences possible.  When you take advantage of the web, you are connected to that, you can go deeper in the rabbit hole than you ever could before.
