Brainstorming Does Not Work

Written by

Brainstorming, a term coined by Alex F. Osborn in the 1950s, has often been used as a method to come up with new ideas. According to him, the team would meet, talk about ideas and during such meetings there would be no criticism of any idea, they would go for large quantities of ideas, build on each other’s ideas and even encourage wild and exaggerated ideas. He further went on to say this produced large quantities of ideas and that quantity produced quality.

On July 10, 2017 a young teenaged girl reportedly died after being electrocuted in a bathtub by her cell phone. She was either plugging the device or it was already plugged in when it fell into the water in the bathtub at her father’s home in New Mexico. Such has become the addiction to social networking that especially the young lose sleep, eat indifferently, compromise on their studies with a cascading effect on their careers, have little interaction with the family and very little actual social life; while being influenced by the unknowns they meet on the net.

Nineteen-year-old Italian fashion blogger Chiara Nasti receives malicious online comments and hate messages every day. To show haters what she thinks of their comments, she printed some of them on toilet paper and shared a photo on her social media networks with the title “Clean it in a decent way” (“Pulirsi in modo decente”). But many Italian teenagers are not strong enough to fight online abuse with humor.
