How many uses can you think of a paper clip?

Oct 23, 2010
Today I read this article from PresentationZen about the following wonderfully crafted presentation from Sir Ken Robinson on the topic of education and creativity. On it Sir Ken explained, among other ideas, the difference between creativity and divergent thinking which I found fascinating (min 7:48 in the video). Before going any further if you have a few spare minutes imagine a paperclip and give yourself as much time as you want to come up and write down a list of all the things that you can use a paperclip for like for example bending it to make a hook.
