Computers and Creativity explores the many ways people use computers to create software, invent new machines, and express themselves through words, music, graphic art, and multimedia. This brand-new, full-color resource also explains how computers enable people to collaborate over space and time on a scale never before possible without the use of professional intermediaries. Additionally, it examines the ways in which computer-enabled creativity causes us to rethink copyright and patent law, providing legal protection for the creative works of both artists and inventors.

  • Writing: Farewell to Pen and Paper
  • Music: Personal Computer as Piano
  • Video: Recording, Editing, and Creating Special Effects
  • Programming: How Software Is Created
  • Inventing: Using Computers to Drive Innovation
  • Collaboration: Bringing People Together Over the Internet
