I am a New Economy fanatic. Thence a Creativity fanatic. Thence an Intellectual-Capital fanatic. Thence … a … DIVERSITY fanatic.
Doest that mean I’m an Affirmative Action fanatic? Not necessarily. And in any case, that’s beside the point.
What is the point? It’s really quite simple: Creativity and Great Leaps Forward come from… mix/match/mess. That is, all kinds of people providing all kinds of ideas that crazily bounce against one another… and cause a lot of chaos… and eventualy cause a Great Idea to emerge… that… changes the world.
