How to make apps.
This is a great idea and i would love to collaborate with you to do this, i have some app making experience, but there are other factors to think about that have to do with creating this website. Firstly you would need the expertise to write simple code or at least understand the logic behind doing so. Then you would also need to be able to contact a bunch of people who would be interested in cola berating with you on this website to share their experience. but theres many more stuff to do to a project like this. I would love to help out with it if you intend on going forth with it, it is also a great idea as before i had millions of questions regarding this when i first began to introduce myself to app creating. I wasn't a big fan of reading stuff on the topic but loved visualization stuff like websites but this kind of help was very few and far between, and most of my questions where unanswered as many of the people going into app making had other programming experience so i couldn't find out what the compiler was, whether i needed a device or was there a simulator, and i was afraid to try clicking play just incase it screwed up something. I was also looking for a quick fire 101 type of tutorial but there was no such thing either. Again i would love to cola berate with you on this idea, please contact me. :P

Are creativity and leadership overrated?
I feel that leadership is definitely over rated but creativity less so and in fact could be viewed as underrated in certain cultures. My dad is constantly remarking on leadership skills and if a certain achievement is great leadership wise he will care even more and praise the idea or achievement with some excess. The term leadership is important but only on a high end level and of those who are willing to lead and wan't to become a future leader or those with the natural skill to do so ad shouldn't be imposed onto the children as of extremely high expectations of the parents. Which are usually imposed due to the culture or ideology of the parents. Being an asian kid of 15 the term of creativity is seemingly underrated as the way that asian culture teaches children, though it is slowly changing, is through "dead memorization" this way of learning makes it so that the child is only taking things in through the teacher and textbooks. Very few of these children are able to take this information and apply it in their own way through their own learning and make something cool. The children who can are then viewed as natural leaders who can accomplish much and through them their teachers, parents and organizations are receiving more praise and encouragement then the students who actually achieve and then they deserve. This leadership skill is, due to this, subsequently pushed into the minds of other parents to forcedly increase the leadership skills not realizing that this links greatly with creativity but they are ignoring creativity directly which is sometimes viewed as rebellious and is at most times discouraged as it may not meet the expectations of the parents future desires of the child's place in society. That is also why the arts in chinese schools, probably except of singing, are not taught. If parents view leadership as such an important thing to impose on children why not view creativity similarly as to be creative will give you an easy leg up to leadership.
