“Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating.” John Cleese
Sevenclicks is a brainstorm tool that allows you to discover new connections between your subjects of interest, creating a pathway that brings you from A to X in seven clicks.
In psychology creativity is mostly defined as combining distant concepts together. Research has shown that broader thoughts are linked to successful ideas. Therefore, Sevenclicks is a tool to stimulate broad thinking by taking the user from his initial topic to unexpected, yet related subjects.
The website Sevenclicks.org is a creative research tool that takes you on a path through the vast and connected knowledge base of Wikipedia. The result is a seven-page glossary, containing the seven chosen topics, which can then be saved or shared with others.
Sevenclicks.org was created with the vision to grow through your usage, participation and feedback. We are always looking for people, collaborations and ideas to further develop Sevenclicks as a tool and methodology - for ideas and critique feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
