Age and Creativity
Marc Andreessen just wrote an article about how age affects creativity, specifically targeting what age is best for entrepreneurship. He’s going to address the topic in two parts: first trying to get some real data, second to give his opinion.
He spends quite a bit of time quoting from the research of Dean Simonton at University of California Davis, who has spent his career studying how age affects creativity in different fields. I have to admit I’m sort of a junkie for well written research supported by hard data, and Simonton certainly qualifies.
