Just a quick post this morning.
Since Rethink(IP) is, at its heart, a collaboration – I found this short post from the b-spirit blog, to be an interesting read. Entitled Born To Collaborate:
Are we genetically predisposed to collaborate? There may be a biological basis as to why some individuals collaborate and multitask far more effectively than others.
This means that creative people remain more aware of and alert to extra information that comes streaming in from the surrounding environment. A “normal” person would see an object, classify it, and then forget about it, even though the object may be far more complex than he believes it to be. Someone who is less mentally keen needs to filter out extraneous stimuli in order to avoid suffering from overload and a resulting psychosis.
