It’s rare (actually this is the first time) that I write about a book.  Anyway, I’m reading the chapters in this book and am finding great paragraphs on things I “felt” but couldn’t describe.

“Innovative enviornments are better at helping their inhabitants explore the adjacent possible, because they expose a wide and diverse sample of spare parts – mechanical or conceptual – and they encourage novel ways of recombining those parts.  Envirronments that block or limit those new combinations – by punishing experimentation, by obscuring certain branches of possibility, by making the current state so satisfying that no one bothers to explore the edges – will, on average, generate and circulate fewer innovation than environments that encourage exploration.” (So true – W.S.)
