Where Do Good Ideas Come From?

I have linked to Steven Johnson before. I find how his observation that “chance favors the connected” all that I need to justify the energy I spend trying to unite our indie film community. I still haven’t read his book yet, but luckily I do have his lectures.

I love how the environment suggested for good idea generation is chaotic. I long had a piece of calligraphy in my office with the symbols of chaos and creativity. Further his dominant “slow hunch” process helps me from getting too restless about how long it is taking to get us out of the current swamp. I may have to read the book — if I can find the time that is.

New Discovery Tool: SkyGrid

Okay, it doesn’t discover movies for you, but it does help you track those subjects that are of interest to you. I have just started to use it, so I don’t have much to report on it yet. Stay tuned.

You can check it out on iTunes here.

Hat tip to David Tisch for pointing this out to me!

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
