When you think about good ideas, people often think ideas that come through an “Eureka!” moment. But Steven Johnson shows us a different story. His suggests that ideas evolve like “liquid networks” and that when one’s “hunches” is connect with other people’s hunches; that’s when magic happens. When you have half of an idea and somebody else’s other half, as well as the “right environment”, idea mature. When I viewed the video it reminded me of the theory behind Spigit’s system – which I think is the ‘right environment’ for ideas to be connected with other ideas .
Steven concludes with the comment that ‘ Chance favours the connected mind’,
BTW – I wanted to also ask you all how things are going with your road on the innovation? What is your biggest challenage? Love to hear your comments….
