Dan Zen will be re-branding the Dan Zen Creativity Framework to CreativityFramework.com and providing the framework free of charge. He would like people to consider the framework as theirs to use for creativity. He would also like to encourage the framework be used in schools and thinks a more generic name will help meet these goals.

Touchy, the mobile game from Dan Zen will be featured in a short segment on CBC’s Dragon Den on January 18th, 2012 at 8PM.
Touchy – visit http://touchy.mobi – is available on the Apple iTunes store and Android Market. It is a social game where players physically try to touch each others’ mobile screens. So it is a game of reaching and protecting – with shrieks of laughter!
The pitch went well – but I was called in the day after a three day conference with late parties each night and this was just after a long open house – after I stopped talking, I could hardly get my mouth open – all I could do was nod and smile! Oh well – Inventor Dan Zen.
We would love your help getting Touchy out to the people – please check out the game on iTunes and Android Market – just search for Touchy – links are available at http://touchy.mobi, leave a review and tell anyone who you think would like to play – it is hard getting the message out to the youth – the primary market.
If you are interested in getting involved in an upcoming Touchy Tournament – find us on facebook and leave a message on the Wall – http://facebook.com/touchymobi – all the best!

Opartica II TUNNEL the online op art making tool where you create and fly through 3D optical art has launched on the Dan Zen site!
Please check out the Opartica Facebook page for postings and discussion. “Likes” are greatly appreciated!
Opartica II makes use of HummingBird the open source Parallax code for Flash written by Inventor, Dan Zen, and part of the Flash Feathers series of advanced interfaces.
Opartica II lets you create a wide variety of op art in two basic formats, tiled with rows and columns and radial with segments. There are a variety of shapes including free form curves. Layers, backgrounds, distances between layers and a unique fill mode and more can be controlled from the left hand panel.
You can save works (Tunnels) with the right hand panel. You can automate a slide show through your Tunnels and animate in 3D at various speed settings. There is an import and export feature to share and save Tunnels.
The original Opartica was launched in 2005 and has received over 200,000 views. It is still available at the bottom of the Opartica site.
Dan Zen used the current Opartica was used to create hundreds of Op Art holiday cards which can be viewed on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/danzen/sets/72157625558618858/ the collection – perhaps one of the largest collection of hand made Op Art, shows the diversity available in Opartica. Please have fun exploring!
