How And Where Ideas Source

The quote below really resonates with me.

“Ideas aren’t self-contained things; they’re more like ecologies and networks.  They form clusters. – Kevin Kelly, author of What technology Wants.innovation-moment2

The source is one of two authors interviewed in the current issue of Wired Magazine.  The second interviewee is Steven Johnson, who’s new book Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation  comes out next week.

These are two must-reads for anyone interested in innovation and creativity.

Each book takes a different but historical look at the evolution of ideas both through the places they have incubated and the inter-relationships of people who generate them.
