I've always wondered what "think outside the box" really meant because I didn't know I was in a box. Then I started participating on and then leading projects. I quickly learned what the box was. I instantly hated it. I wasn't sure where everyone got their boxes but I was not envious one bit. I was happy without my box. That box is now a search engine which in many ways is worse than the box (which I imagined was cardboard). Sure it's great for information, knowledge, etc..but not so great for fresh ideas. Don't get me wrong, you can take something that exists and make it new and fresh...but it's not the place to start, it's a tool. The greatest computer (tool) is your brain. Use it! So that doesn't describe me though....or does it?
PS. Big projects going on at work and two volunteer things going on right now so please forgive my lack of detail for the next few months. Doing things for fun (like this) are taking a back burner.
Build out profiles for the Maker and the Believer that will offer a "match" and % of match based of their selections. (Like a dating site) Also offer search engines that look around for new things for you. (Like a job searching site)
Been traveling for work and totally behind on this. Great builds off my basic concept have come up! Check out there's. I'll try to post their links but I'm new to this and I have to figure out how to find them :). I didn't keep the emails. Any one who knows how to find them would love some help.
