Do you want to get an Epiphany? #Blogg100

Chance favors the connected mind [Keep on blogging]

Been listening again to Where Ideas Come From from TED Radio Hour featuring Matt Ridley, Susan Cain and Steven Johnson.

How does innovation happen?

Some key points:
1. We all need each other’s skills. Nobody knows how to make anything today. The one man society doesn’t exist anymore. We all depend on others to do there part in this giant bee hive of ours.

2. Creativity comes from Coffee houses. Where people with different backgrounds and different ways of thinking meet up. Before coffee houses happened in Europe we where all drunk all day. This is where Ideas can have sex. Our modern Coffee houses is Unconferences like WebCoast and Sweden Social Web Camp. And Tweetups and Social Media Clubs.

Chance favors the connected mind

3. Go to the wilderness and be alone in your own head. Then write down your ideas. We must brainstorm and think in solitude.  To come up with hunches to bring to this coffee houses. Darwin wrote down every idea and hunch he had in his note book. So long before he had his Epiphany he had been blogging all along. It’s called Journaling and helps your brain with it’s thought process. Leonardo da Vinci did it too.

4. Share your ideas. It is easy to spread good ideas and hard to spread bad ideas. So keep on sharing! Sunlight is a great disinfectant! Do good shit alone and together using Sustainability, Collaboration, Transparency and Community.

Keep on writing down all your thoughts and blog about them and your Epiphany will come 🙂

Before we had innovation we used the same Acheulean Axe for a million years
