Where great ideas come from- steven johnson

September 27, 2010

A great video from Steve Johnson explaining where great ideas come from.

Here’s his take in summary…

1. Ideas take a lot of time to form
2. They exist in half-formed hunch form for a long-time
3. Create spaces where hunches can be formed into ideas
4. Connectivity can help create new ideas- think web
5. Distraction is reality- but more ways to connect and to stumble

His final thought…

“Chance favors the connected minded.
