Ideas are Born in Networks.

Just to recap, a network is an adaptable number of connections. The neurons in your brain are a network because there are a large number of connections and because it’s adaptable – new connections can be made.

In the same way that your noggin is the place where your thoughts and ideas are created, Johnson argues that networks are the breeding ground for new ideas. Networks where knowledge can be exchanged, where people can interact, and where random connections can be made are the “fertile zone” of discovery. Johnson says you must connect and combine your way to innovation by playing in these networks.

That’s it. You should be networked. Your ideas should be networked.
