There is an interesting example from the world of chess in Michael Nielsen’s fantastic new book Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science. The book discusses how our improved ability to network via the internet is changing the face of science. It’s an interesting book, and also an important one and I recommend it highly.
Deconstructing the Design Thinker by Sohrab Vossoughi via Ralph-Ohr
The term ‘design thinking’ has lost some of its lustre of late, particularly in business publications. In my view, this is the natural result of throwing around a term with a bit too much enthusiasm and not enough understanding, and it is truly unfortunate, because the qualities it describes have never been more important.

Why We Cannot Perceive the World Objectively by Michael Michalko

Enjoy it Riding the Whitewater Rapids – 5 Life Lessons by Jon Mertz One thing can be said about me – I am not a water-sports-type-of-guy. After nearly drowning as a very young kid, I never learned how to swim until I was in my early 20s, but that is another story… Finding […]

Finding Your Next Big (Adjacent) Idea by James L. McQuivey via Ralph Ohr

After writing about extreme creativity for a couple of days, here’s a real-life example: Gulp, the world’s largest stop-motion animation film. It’s extreme creativity in that it takes the skill set (manipulating and filming inanimate objects in a very controlled indoor setting) and scale (small) of typical stop-motion animation films in a completely different direction:
