I never had an interest in poetry when I was younger -- I'm coming to appreciate it more -- here's a link to a blog I wrote about a poem that really spoke to me (http://bit.ly/jxSKED)

Creativity is critical, as you point out Brian. Something we need to keep emphasizing, and an area where skills need sharpening. For my part, I regularly include poetry writing exercises when I give sales training. Art, music, poetry: all help us to do a better job thinking about problems, and communicating with each. Thanks for your vocal support of the arts!

I have to admit that I was never very good at art when I was in school, but I did enjoy music and other crafts. [link=http://www.replicamall.net/]replica designer handbags[link]

I also treat a well-built PCBA as art. When I pull apart some device, I usually will inspect the circuit board carefully, part for understanding how the circuit work, but part is just to admire the nicely routed traces an regular (sometimes irregular) placement of components.

A very crucial part of one individual is the artistic sense, and that plays it's hand in every thing the person does- from being a mechanic to being a scientist and everything in between. It forms the very core of freedom and creative thinking, so good work Mr.Bailey, I applaud your efforts.

There are so many art projects that are amazing showcasing electronics- Saw one by Ben Innes at Maker Faire and loved it! Found it on the element14 site too. www.element14.com/art

When I was a lad building little electronic projects using discrete components, if I had a choice of say two capacitors of the same value, I would select the one whose size, shape, or color best fit in with the overall "look and feel" of the rest of the board. Similarly, if there were different brands of resistors, I would always purchase the ones with the most vibrant colored bands...
