I got nothing.

I think the biggest problem I had with the assignment "create something new" is that...well, it's hard to create something new just out of the blue. I like to think of myself as a creative person, but unfortunately I can't just create something that no one has imagined before without some basis on which to begin. Perhaps the reason that the class came up with ideas that Professor Dalke thought were mostly just rehashings of old or traditional concepts for classes was because it's next to impossible to "evolve" a new idea out of nothing like that in, a short period of time. Evolution requires slow change from one concept to another, until something that is entirely new and different from teh original is created. Change over time, right?
