The bigger or should I say the more strategic and widely significant an initiative, the less likely it will ever see the light of day, at least any time soon. So it has occurred to me that a better way to get really important projects off the ground is by starting with “A tightly held conspiracy to do good.”
Had the world recognized the significance of the Internet, it is possible the world would still be debating the standard … to this day.
Great things seem to start in the minds of a few, then come to life rather quickly and in a form that is highly usable. And if this creation also happens to be convenient and economical – you may have a “killer application” on your hands. If you have not heard this term … know that it is a good thing. It does not mean death … quite the opposite!
And while “tightly held conspiracies to do good” may not prove essential in such fields as the development of supersonic aircraft I think it is highly relevant to innovation in the information age.
