Last weekend I went through a bunch of my notes over the past year and dropped a few of the thoughts that were there into these slides. These were all things that I meant to write a post about but never got around to writing.
The purpose for doing this was two-fold. First, now that I'm wanting to get back to writing more often, I'm hoping that this will give me some fodder and inspiration. Secondly, I'm playing with developing a more consistent slide look/feel for things on here and this is what I'm liking the most of what I've tried so far.
If anything in here piques your curiosity or spurs a thought you want to chat about, drop me a note in the comments. Same goes for any thoughts on slide look/feel.
Also, four or five of the notes/thoughts in here were spurred by Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation, by Steven Johnson. I read it last winter shortly after it came out. It's a pretty good read to understand the types of environments that spur new thinking. Another one is a take on a fun quote by Linus Pauling.
