"The future is here. It's
just not evenly distributed yet," observed
William Gibson. Truer now than ever, as the
Internet has placed countless innovations,
breakthroughs, and insights at our fingertips.
Ideas are now cheaper than ever, and R&D has
been reduced to a good search engine.
impediment to a better world isn't creativity,
it's adoption, implementation, and execution. Minds may be easily convinced, but hearts lag
behind. What's painfully needed now are the
motivators: coaches, persuaders, professional
ass-kickers. Fire the nerds, hire the coaches. Farewell the "Ideas"
festival, welcome the "Actions" festival.
