Let's meetup and brainstorm using Thinkertoys (a creative development book)

Let's help each other with 2013 goals by using techniques out of the book Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko. It has very insightful and effective linear and non-linear techniques that help get people get to truly original creative ideas.

Does anyone actually have this book? Please bring it!

We'll be upstairs on the top level pool room.

    It was nice to meet other creatives with similar life experiences and skill sets. I am still getting to know Portland and meeting new folks makes a big difference. Looking forward to more meetings!

    I had a great time, wish everyone that RSVPd came, but those that did I think got some good info out of it.

    I'm going to just break down and buy the book and figure out the game plan before the group starts but take suggestions if others already know it. Do you know it @hok?

      Not this one, but I have been involved in a few other creative think tank sessions with past creative agencies and can share some of the things we learned. But this has me curious...

      Hi Hok - I couldn't make it to the event tonight but, having organized a few of these myself, I would love to hear more about your experiences. Would you mind messaging me? I'd be happy to share some of my resources in return!

    This sounds interesting, will we be actually using this book or just talking about some of the concepts within its chapters?

    Hey, I don't actually have this book!! Is there anyone that's RSVP'd that has it? It was a former member who suggested this and I love the idea, but don't have the book. Hope someone has it handy!

    This sounds like an excellent idea! We just need a time, and a place. How about something on the weekend, as a lot of members have been requesting this. Any ideas on where we could host such an event?
