Can this mini-documentary on creative coding inspire non-techies?

One of my favorite YouTube channels is PBS OffBook, which produces very cool mini-documentaries on technology-related content.

Their latest effort is this video, "The Art of Creative Coding", which interviews a "community of artists who use the language of code as their medium." Take a look to learn more about Cinder, the RGBDToolkit and other projects.

If you code for a living, what do you think of these projects? Is it good to allow more creative types into the coding circle? Or are they mucking up things?
