Frustration Inspires Creativity

My wife shared a video with me yesterday. It’s about how frustration inspires creativity. It’s pretty good.

As a programmer, I deal with frustrating tools every day. I also see how bad software is, in general.

Maybe our frustrating ecosystem isn’t really producing the kind of creativity we want.

Maybe we need tools that get out of our way, so that we can focus on our craft, instead of trying to create the next unicorn.



Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
