I'm currently reading a book that I've been meaning to get to for several years. So far, Intellectual Capital by Thomas A. Stewart was worth the wait....it's a gem, and seems to be more relevant today than it was a few years back. I'm at least a little glad that I waited.
Stewart on the revolution that is the arrival of the Information Age: "Surviving and thriving in such times require peripheral vision as well as focus, adaptability as well as power. The better you can understand the large forces - the tectonic plates - reshaping our world, the better you will be able to cope with the surprises they are certain to throw at us. These days, keeping your nose to the grindstone is a big, shortsighted mistake."
Reminds me of some of our initial thoughts about the Rethink(IP) project and the purposes behind our little adventure.
