    The Hypothesis 2A and 2B proposed in that article look good in theory but generally I have found that young children these days are getting too engrossed in multimedia aspects of phones and other gaming technology. Their creativity and ability to generate new ideas is being adversely affected by improper use of technology.

      Thank you for passing by and for your comment. You raise an interesting point here. The ideas were gathered in 2006. While the age of the data was actually the reason why the dataset was important to us, the technological frame was different than nowadays. It would be interesting to repeat the idea gathering in the near future and repeat the study. Perhaps we will be surprised again!
