Beyond Productivity: Information Technology, Innovation, and Creativity

Just as the development of film led to the art of photography, more recent technological advances have helped artists and designers create innovative architectural and product designs; computer-animated films, music, and games; and interactive art installations. Beyond Productivity: Information Technology, Innovation, and Creativity, a report from the National Academies' Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, explores the interaction between information technology and arts and design and how it can provide significant cultural and economic benefits. Sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, the report also suggests ways that foundations, government agencies, and other organizations can foster information technology and creative practices.
