How to kill creativity

For the last year, I've been doing lots of talks on my book 'A User Guide to the Creative Mind'. They've been focused on how to understand the creative process and harness it to have more ideas.

So, in reaction to that, I decided to do a talk about the exact opposite - How to Kill Creativity.

I did the talk in October 2012 at the Silicon Beach conference in Bournemouth. And this is a slightly condensed version with audio.

For those who've had an irony-bypass, please understand that it's entirely sarcastic. Well, mostly, at least.
