open evolution


Creativity is universal. While all human beings are born creative, the journey of learning what makes us creative and how to realize our potential is ongoing. This is why we decided to open the c.os model and encourage its evolution by the community.

The c.os model is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. This means you can copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format, as well as remix, transform, and build upon the model, as long as you meet all the following requirements:

  • Attribute the work as follows: “The Creativity Operating System by Lidor Wyssocky” (but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use)
  • Include a link back to CreativityOS.com
  • Provide a link to the licensing information on this page
  • If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your resulting work under the same Creative Commons license with a clear indication of the changes

We’d love it if you would also tell us how you are extending the model or what extensions you think would be of value so we can consider incorporating your additions in the formal model (with the appropriate attribution, of course) or in our future roadmap.
