While culture being the "software" controlling human mind, computer software development becomes one of the most creative activities that human undertake since the civilisation began. The only limitation in software creation is human imagination, and that limit is often self-imposed. The "Internetware", refers to a software paradigm, aims to satisfy the need of human kind using Internet as an integrated development and execution platform. Such software systems composed of entities distributed through the Internetwork, allowing connections that would be impossible or difficult to make otherwise. This paper gear towards the tasks for the Internetware is to accommodate creativity. In particular, we propose a six-step approach to Internetware development, an approach suggests essential difference to traditional methods. The six steps in this approach are search, ideation, specification, coding, testing, and operation. For each of these steps, we suggest a set of techniques to carry out the step in practice. The proposed developmental model asks researchers and practitioners of the Internetware paradigm to better understand human creativity and to formulate an algorithmic perspective on creative behavior in human, to design programs that can enhance human creativity without necessarily being creative themselves.
