Elizabeth Gilbert’s TED 2009 talk on creativity


I’m smitten with Elizabeth Gilbert’s take on creativity from TED2009. If you’ve ever tried to create something, whether it’s a piece of music or a web app, you’ll resonate with this story. Elizabeth muses on the craziness of creativity and the haunting power that visits works of genius. Her view is that genius is on loan from some other place and that we don’t own genius.
