Mario Izquierdo Boosting Creativity by Reducing TTP – TTP means how quickly a troll invades a virtual space

Mario Izquierdo, in his 2021 Playful Creative Summit Boosting Creativity by Reducing TTP conversation with Alyea Sandovar spoke about the value of learning the hard, boring, repetitive stuff as a foundation for creativity. He is an engineer by training, which he compared to learning how to bounce a basketball before you can play. His training provided a broad foundation for his work as a software developer. Their free-flowing conversation examined the differences between exact real-time, live video platforms such as Twitch, where, for example, a celebrity chef could launch a new recipe live to an enthralled audience, vs. YouTube, where the same chef might offer a how-to video of that meal which people can view and try at their leisure. In other words, thoughtful access to information is critical to its effective use. How you structure conversations in chat rooms, whether people are allowed to vote on issues or not, whether you allow people to use emoticons or words, all makes a difference in the virtual world. I would extend the thought that this sensitivity is just as invaluable in face-to-face interactions: are you making eye contact, are you pausing long enough before you respond to someone to be sure you’ve given them full time to talk, are you trying to add to their thoughts…

For someone who may not know what a internet troll is, the Urban Dictionary defines an internet troll as: “An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.”
