Where Good Ideas Come From

"Here's a short video promo for Steven Johnson's upcoming Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation, a lecture on the way that transformative ideas incubate for long times, come out of left field, and thrive best when there's no one foreclosing on them because they're too weird or disruptive. It's inspiring stuff, and a real indictment of proprietary and closed systems that put blocks and hurdles in the way of creators in the name of "good user experience" or legal compliance."

Don't feel too bad about those percolating film making or vfx ideas you have on the back burner that don't seem to want to develop. You may just need time or the connection to the right network of other people's semi-gestated ideas.
