Jeff Smith presents "Creativity as Theft: The Honourable and Necessary Art of Stealing From Others In the Pursuit of Creative Expression"

Creativity researcher and fantasy novelist Jefferson Smith will give a public lecture on his research into exploiting creative theft, improving software tool design and appropriating new tools from other fields. This talk will be a blend of research results, anecdotal experience and practical advice for both software developers and fiction writers. Refreshments will be served.
