There are a few TED talks that are bible for me, and this is one of them.
I’m especially drawn here to the idea of creativity as a group activity, a team sport — something that I suppose every creative person has experienced but maybe not recognized because this process is really haphazard and slow.
I also like the relationship between connected-ness and the idea of play. The story at the end of this talk about the birth of GPS sounds like a lot of fun, and super-underscores for me that cool ideas are shaped like a conversation.
Of course it’s probably a good idea if you’re going to do a talk on connections if you have all of your main stories connect up with each other.. Nice.
