This four-minute video, about Steven Johnson‘s book of the same name, is so brilliantly illustrated that it would be worth watching for that reason alone.
But Steve’s underlying point that it illustrates — that when it comes to creativity, “chance favors the connected mind” — is so profound that it would take me an entire book to elaborate.
I hope someday I have time to write that book. I wish I just had the time to read Steve’s book. But right now I only have time to leave you this blog post.
