Why I Love Blogs

prellBlog comments are a source of unending delight — heat, light, humor, whatever. Yesterday, Gizmodo asked the musical question, “What’s the most important gadget (the biggest game-changer) of all time?”

Ignoring the fact that fans of Mel Brooks and the 2000 Year-Old Man know that the correct answer is ‘Liquid Prell,” Gizmodo readers responded with the following (first twenty answers):

1. The microchip
2. The telegraph
3. Fire
4. Fleshlight
5. Nokia 5170
6. Stick
7. Eyeglasses
8. Electricity
9. Modem
10. Camera
11. Cylons
12. Wheel
13. Toilet
14. Rocket
15. Printing Press
16. Battery
17. Bread slicer (greatest invention since… Get it?)
18. Computer
19. Clock
20. Women

Hard to beat fun at the old blog yard!

Twenty-One Principles

many-flavorsThe many flavors of innovation
Diego Rodriguez. he of Metacool, is elucidating twenty one principles of creative development. They are thoughtful and important. He’s plowed through nine, which I thought I’d share in a shorter form. Read the details as they appear on Metacool:

1. Experience the world instead of talking about experiencing the world
2. See and hear with the mind of a child
3. Always ask: “How do we want people to feel after they experience this?”
4. Prototype as if you are right. Listen as if you are wrong
5. Anything can be prototyped, and you can prototype anything
6. Live life at the intersection (innovation lives at the intersection of desirability, viability, and feasibility)
7. Develop a taste for the many flavors of innovation
8. Most new ideas aren’t
9. Killing good ideas is a good idea

More soon.
