Ideas are hard to find, people love to have ideas! Having lots of ideas looks like you really are very creative and that you must posses very special talents more than anybody else around you. Often you are praised for being so highly creative and so smart, that you indulge yourself in all kinds of happy thoughts about how good you are consequently daydreaming about having many more ideas in the future. We believe that anybody can be creative and has the capacity to have ideas or think thoughts that if brought to bear are so creative and ingenious that we could become envious of such a person. Our hypothesis is that if you could externalize ideas with the aid of computational machines and bring out the creative act in harmonized and holistic ways such that people can benefit and gain from it. Sharing and spreading your ideas, showing creativity without being inhibited, having confidence to open yourself up and feel free to convey your thoughts no matter how 'ridiculous' it may sound has an immediate affect on people's behavior, self-esteem and psychological condition. Creativity, imagination and inspiration go together well with doing, taking action and being motivated to carry on.
