somewhere along the line, we have the interesting phenomenon that Alex
Martelli doesn't think of himself as creative ...  meanwhile, he goes
about life creating a lot.  :-) You must think that creativity is
something different than what happens to you when you are creating
things.  How very odd. I would say that all of those support people
are creators too.  However, the joy of 'helping' might be more of
what motivates them than the joy of 'creating'.  I am curious as to
what happens to those people who are getting satisfaction out of their
lives while not being creative, because I understand them so poorly
This will make it hard for us to build attractive work environments for
them.  Whatever it is that they want, we probably do not have.
