Chance favors the connected mind.
I just picked up Steven Berlin Johnson's Where Good Ideas Come From after watching this sketch-note summarization of the ideas in the book.
I became a fan of Steven's after reading the New Yorker article "Watching TV Makes you Smarter" and his book, Everything Bad is Good for You. This one looks like it will be an interesting read. I'm hoping it's full of stories of long drawn out infancy of ideas, and the collisions and connections that make ideas succeed.
