Interesting stuff, plus play features heavily.
My notes after the jump, (will only make sense after watching).

Playful – Open mode, 5 things:
1 Space – Create an oasis of quite space undisturbed.
2 Time – Prescribed play times distinct from ordinary life in time and location, 1.5 hours.
3 Time – Stick (play) with the problem longer. When does this decision need to be taken? defer the decision until then. Giving your mind as long a possible to come up with something original.
4 Confidence – True play is experiment. While you’re being creative, nothing is wrong.
5 Humour – Can help us get us from closed to open mode quickly.
– Keep mind gently on the subject.
– Collaborate, with playfriends.
– Connect different ideas (Juxtapositions), then filter. Absurd ideas – intermediate impossibles as a stepping stone to good ideas.
