This time i’m going to write about spiritual + creativity! The result is spiritual creativity! =D

Let us turn off all the light.. Close your eyes… and go deep deep inside yourself..

Now, let us turn on the candle!

The candle is the symbol often use in some religious ritual. Candle have many meanings but most of all candle remind all of us about the light inside ourself.

All of us have a light inside themselves, the difference is in the power of the light inside every peoples.
People who live their life with good deeds, people who likes to help each others, people like religious leader, and another good people is shining. However..
People who do bad deeds, never appreciate their life, always grumbling, complaining, is a people who is not shining and living in the dark.

So, in order for people to shine! They have to have a spiritual creativity! =D

Spiritual Creativity is actually a part of 3 intelligence that human have.

Well, there is indeed a lot of books about the IQ and also about the EQ. So i will not talking about IQ or EQ because i’m sure people already know what it is.

However.. The Spiritual! This is very interesting!

The spiritual creativity is actually about adding a creativity in our spiritual live! This creativity can help us in finding the meaning of our lives, the reason to live, how to live your life, or whatever you want about your life. This creativity help us to actually think out of the box! Thing about how we want to spend our spirit life?

One example is in reading a bible.
Creative people actually invent something very creative in order for us to be able to enjoy our spiritual life to the fullest! They create a bible application for handphone, computer, smartphone, etc!

They show us the new way of reading a bible!

That is actually just one of the example of the creativity in spiritual life.

However, spiritual creativity also help us in finding the meaning of our live and make our life seems ful!

I’m sure that people actually have different idea about this spiritual creativity since we cannot see, but we need to believe. =D

INTERNET!!! INTERNET!!

I’m pretty sure most of the people in the world know what internet really is but let us explore more the world of Internet! =D

The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a vast range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents of theWorld Wide Web (WWW) and the infrastructure to support electronic mail. < Taken from Wikipedia>

Internet is a technology that creates a globalization. =3
Internet allow people from everywhere to connect with each other, explore the world, read politics, and many other from home!
All you need is just a modem and a device that can connect to the computer. =)

In my daily life, internet is very important and useful!
First! Without internet i will not be able to make this blog and share my thought around the world! =)
With internet i can share my thought through blogging. =D

The next thing i often do with my internet is to socialize with friends and meet a new friends!

So be wise in managing your time when you use your internet and be careful not to become to addicted to it. =D

Haii!! =D

Meet me again! The author of the blog with the title “The Door of Infinite Possibility”!

This time, i’m going to write about something very serious! It’s actually a big issue in this current year!
Before i began, let me introduce my subject for this post!

Say Hello to my new subject! Hellloooooo!! =D


Okay, so this is my new subject for this blog! OPEN INNOVATION!!
Some of you must be wandering right now.. What is OPEN INNOVATION? Why is it an issue for this current year? *wondering wondering*

No worry! Let us ask the one who make OPEN INNOVATION popular! Mr. Henry Chesbrough!

He is giving a lecturer now. =D

Mr Henry Chesbourgh states that “Open innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the markets for external use of innovation, respectively. This paradigm assumes that firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as they look to advance their technology.” [Chesbrough, 2006]

Innovation is very important for the company in order to survive! The company who didn’t do an innovation will go bankrupt because they will lose with their competitor. That is the reason why OPEN INNOVATION is a very important issue of the year, even tough not so many people realize how important it is!

Today, the company often used CLOSED INNOVATION instead of OPEN INNOVATION.

CLOSED INNOVATION is an innovation that only used an internal technology and knowledge in order to define a new products and services. In other words, only use the available resources inside the company.

CLOSED INNOVATION example is by build a research facility that research the products and services that will be hit in the market. The company who have a big capital will be benefit from this type of innovation of course because they can conduct a research that will make them superior than the other company. Some of the completed research have a license, but some of the patent research do not undergo more development because of not enough resources, money, and technology. Don ‘t you think that is a waste of money spend in the research?

That question will be answered by OPEN INNOVATION!!

Closed Innovation is no longer a good method of innovation. This is the list of Closed Innovation Erosion:

1. Increasingly mobile trained workers

2. More capable Universities

3. Diminished US hegemony

4. Erosion of oligopoly market positions

5. Enormous increase in Venture Capital

Now let us see our subject again! OPEN INNOVATION! *now in full color!* =D

OPEN INNOVATION is an innovation technique that include both the external and internal knowledge and technology in order to develop a new products or service that will be able to fit in other firm’s market, the new market, and the current market. Open Innovation suggest the company to consider the external knowledge and technology in order to improve their company.
Now is not the time to be closed to the environment. The company today needs to open their company to the environment!

The first step in doing an OPEN INNOVATION is by putting the OPEN SIGN in front of the company door. =3
Open Innovation is an innovation that suggest the company to share the research to the world outside the company. This means getting outside the boundary of the company. The company who have enough resources and technology can use the research created by other company and develop the research and even get a patent for it. This will resulting in a win-win solution for both the company because the company who doing a research will get a money and the company who develop the research will benefit from the research.

Today there is a lot of company that has changed into an OPEN INNOVATION company.
This is a few list of the company that is an OPEN INNOVATION Company :

Biocancer (Br) Provides drug development and clinical trial services to international pharmaceutical companies, mostly from the USA

TVEI (Br) A company founded by local media industry experts, offers multi-platform sport-related interactive content to consumers and advertising services to businesses.

Movix (Ch) Technologies for mobile operators developed by former employee of a large telco, the main product was licensed exclusively to a(nother) telco

Akikb (Ch) Self-storage solution, not available in Chile at the time, based on a widespread model from the USA and leveraging the infrastructure of an established “sister” construction company

Alltournative (Mx) Ecotourism and recreational experiences with the support and collaboration of local Mayan communities

Interfactura (Mx) Billing software and services initially developed for a large firm and integrated to its network of suppliers

This company do a research regarding their specialty. Their research will then be develop by the other company who have more money and technology. This kind of innovation will benefit both the company and will increase the scope of the products and services unlike the CLOSED INNOVATION.

The conclusion is that today company need to change their company into an OPEN INNOVATION company and say goodbye to CLOSED INNOVATION!

For more information and detailed regarding this OPEN INNOVATION i suggest you try to read and buy this book!

Hulla hulla everyone! =D
You must be wondering the reason behind my title for this blog! =D
Well, actually this is my next post regarding what is the most creative company on Earth!

I get a conclusion that the most creative country on Earth is actually APPLE!
Beware! This APPLE is not an ordinary APPLE! It’s an APPLE that can keep your boredom away and give you a wide range of creativity and innovation! =D
So let’s began with the first reason why i choose APPLE  as a creative company! =D

First thing first!! The most attractive and also creative things from APPLE is…. THE LOGO!!!

the history of the apple logo

So, what is the most cool LOGO of APPLE? =D
I do think that the APPLE’s Logo is cool!! I personally think that their first logo is also cool! This is the bigger version of the picture of their first LOGO!

This logo actually picture of Isac Newton together with the apple that makes him famous!

Quite an astonishing LOGO in my opinion! =D

However, they take quit a turn and change their logo into a more simple design which is an APPLE! Just an APPLE! =D
Actually, i think it is also generated from their creative Idea since they was actually able to produce a METALIC APPLE! *grin*

Okay! Enough regarding the APPLE LOGO! The next things that makes APPLE creative is their design of the STORE!!

This design shows the creativity of the store that will ignite the curiosity inside the costumer and will make the costumer wants to see and actually come to the store. =D

The next things that i think is the main reason why i think APPLE is the most creative company is their PRODUCT!!
APPLE  actually has create a lot of creative product that is really OUT OF THE BOX!!!
No one ever create the gadget before! That is why APPLE product is so good and creative and also like by a lot of people. =3

What is the most creative country on earth?
One day my lecturer asked me this question and told me to write it in my personal blog.
Some of you may agree with the title for this post, some of you may not agree, and some of you may not care at all! =)
Well, whatever the answer you have, this is my answer for that wonderful question! So let’s begin and come to see inside the door of my mind! =)

This is my second post for my creativity and innovation course class.
In this post i will told you the most creative country on earth.. =)

The most creative country on Earth in my opinion is JAPAN!!

Say hello to Japan everyone! =)

Okay, i guess you must be wondering why i choose Japan as the most creative country on Earth!

To tell you the truth, actually, the first country that pop up in my mind when my lecturer asked me regarding the most creative country on earth is Egypt!

But, come to think about it, Egypt is indeed a creative country, but it was in the past. So i change my mind to the most creative country in modern era which is…… JAPAN!

First reason why i choose Japan is because of their traditional clothing which is….

A KIMONO!!!

How creative people of Japan really is to be able to invent a traditional cloth such as KIMONO!
This is another picture of Kimono.

Look how delicate the pattern in the kimono is.. =) This is actually a kimono used in a wedding ceremony.
How wonderful and creative Japan people is to be able to create such a clothes with a unique and wonderful pattern. =)

Okay, so the next wonders of Japan beside a kimono is their architecture!
Beware and see the wonders of Japan Building!

Look how cool the architecture of Japan is! They actually build this building a long long time ago! How wonderful of Japan really is. =)

There is also a lot of cool and creative Japan Building in this modern era actually..
Look this is a few picture of the creative building in Japan! =)

Look! The people of  Japan really is creative! Japan island is actually rather small, so there is not a lot of space left for people who want to live in Japan. That is why, they need to be creative in creating their house! Like the picture above, in order to create a home together with a parking land, they create a house with a hollow for car park. =)

There is also another astonishing architect!

Look! This one is amazing!

Now, the question is..
What is the main ingredient in order to create this house? =D

The answer is…..

CARDBOARD!!!

This  is one of the creation of the famous architect in Japan! He is Shigeru Ban!

Here is the picture of him. For you all who wonder what he looks like.. =)

The bridge where he stand is also his creation! How creative he really is… =)

Next reason why i choose Japan as the most creative country is…

HARAJUKU!!!! *theme song harajuku girl~gwen stefanni*

This is a place for extreme people to go hang out into! This people is very creative, which can be seen by how the people wears the clothes!

Here is some picture of them:

Look How out of the box the way they are wearing their clothes! Here the people is so creative in making a mix and match in order for them to wear the clothes like in the photo. =)

Okay, so that is all regarding the best creative country on Earth!

Hope you all enjoy your reading! =)

First, this is my first post regarding my assignment for Creativity and Innovation Class!

Let’s get started and be ready to see inside my door of infinite possibility! ~

Okay, so my lecturer asked me to find the meaning and be creative with my name!

My name was given to me by both my parents who loves me so so so much! Of course they do, if they don’t love me i wouldn’t have been born! Hehe.. =)

They give me the name after a lot of work including asking people, reading the books regarding the name and the meaning behind it, and another research before eventually they find a really good name for me.

The name is Ivana Jahja. What a cool name! Give an applause!!

I asked my parents first regarding what is the true meaning behind my name.

My parents then told me that the true meaning behind my name is……………….

The greatest gift from god!

They think that this is a very suitable name and the best name in earth! Shows how much they love me and really looking forward to the baby me. =)

However, in this post i’m going to open the door of infinite possibility inside my head to find the hidden meaning behind my name!

My first name is IVANA, but people often called me IVA! =) So the first hidden name behind my name is….. DIVA~!

Diva is a woman singer who has an outstanding talent who often sing at a theater or an opera. In today term, DIVA is often called a prima donna. DIVA is a center of attention because she usually play a main role in the opera or a theater. So, i assume that the hidden meaning behind my first name has been revealed successfully! =)

This is a picture of a DIVA many many years ago~ This DIVA is playing TOSCA!

As you can see that the DIVA in this picture is quite fat. This is because back in that time, a good DIVA should be someone who is rather fat! People used to think that fat is beautiful. =)

Next, this is a picture of DIVA in this modern era!

Okay, that is all for everything regarding DIVA! =)

Now, let us explore deep down inside the door to find the next hidden meaning behind my second name which is JAHJA!

So, while i was walking inside the door wandering what is the reason and the hidden meaning behind my second name which is actually my family name is..

Then, suddenly something come and give me an inspiration! So the hidden meaning behind my second name is JAPAN!

Say hello to the country of Sun Rise!

See the wonders of Japan regarding the Sakura Tree, the traditional house and of course Mt. Fuji! =)

Not to forget, also one of wonders in Japan is…

GEISHA!!

People often thinks that Geisha is the same as prostitute. However, the truth is geisha is different than prostitute. Geisha is much more complicated than prostitute because to become a geisha, one must have a good talent!

Geisha is a woman who entertain upper class men, and they also have a lot of talent and capability like playing music and such.

Okay, so i guess that is all for the hidden meaning behind my name!

Thank you for reading my post! Hope to see u again in my next post! =)
